President Abraham  & Mary Lincoln


Murray has been appearing as Abraham Lincoln for over 25 years, appearing before service clubs, church congregations, classrooms, Civil War re-enactments, and even a wedding reception.
He has also been involved in two different documentaries about Abraham Lincoln presenters. He has spoken on topics such as Lincoln's youth in frontier Indiana, his career as a lawyer in Illinois, as the role of God in the Nation's Life.  
Mr. Lincoln will be located in the Civil War area at Stone's Trace Pioneer Festival, on September 9th-10th, 2023.

Military Hospital

Field hospitals were set near the battlefield to give medical care to the sick and wounded soldiers.  Surprisingly, two times as many soldiers died of disease than of gunshot wounds.  Civilian women, both North and South, would serve as volunteer nurses in military hospitals under the command surgeon. Among the most famous were Louisa May Alcott, Clara Barton and Dorthea Dix, who convinced the officials to let women work as nurses.

The Generals, portrayed by Larry Werline as General U.S. Grant, Paul Wood as General Robert E. Lee, Dave Eisele as General George Meade, Marc Finnegan as General Edward O.C. Ord. and Andy Hare as General Jeb Stuart, are returning to give you a glimpse of Civil War living History. Each reenactor has participated in educating the public at multiple events in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin. They believe the best way to teach history is to bring it alive.
