Celebrating the Greatest President of All Time: Abe Lincoln

Each year, the Association of Lincoln Presenters come together for a summit, where dozens deck themselves out like the 16th president, and give rousing speeches alongside women dressed like Abe’s wife, Mary. It’s a chance for the presenters to hang out with one another and discuss the latest historical finds about the president—all with the goal of keeping his legacy alive.

We went to this year’s gathering in Freeport, Illinois, to hear why they rep the 16th president, and ask the locals how they feel about dozens of dudes in top hats and women in their town.
