FOR LINCOLN AND LIBERTY!
Camp members Greg Wait, Kip Lindberg and Jeff Patrick participated in ceremonies marking the 150th anniversary of the election of Abraham Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois. A crowd of approximately 300 people, led by living history “Wide Awake” Lincoln supporters, escorted Mr. Lincoln (Lincoln impersonator Fritz Klein) from the Old State Capital to the Lincoln Home, where Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln welcomed well-wishers.
