The Monee Historical Society is pleased to welcome Mark Zumhagen, a part of the Monee community since 2005, to the stage to present readings of some of Abraham Lincoln’s most famous speeches and witty remarks. Mark is a family physician in Orland Park, whose interest in Abraham Lincoln began ten years ago when he gave the Gettysburg Address at his children’s school. Mark bears an uncanny resemblance to Illinois’ favorite son and has portrayed Lincoln for many audiences. 

This is a free program; light refreshments will be served
