|The Friends of the Livingston County Library organization is sponsoring a program called Abe Lincoln, Mark Twain, and the Civil War. It's Veterans Day night at 7 o'clock at the library.|
The Branson based program features Dave Ehlert, as both Abe Lincoln and Mark Twain. It focuses on how they both fought against slavery and racism in pre and post-civil war days.
The President of the Friends of the Livingston County Library, Natalie Leamer, said this is a nationally acclaimed program performed in over 40 states, and has received what she called rave reviews.
The 90 minute production of historical drama, humor, and education is described as being suitable for the whole family. Dave Ehlert has performed as Twain for nearly 10 years. Ms. Leamer said Ehlert began performing in 1967 as Elvis in what became the longest running Elvis tribute show in the world.
