An excerpt from an article by Brent Lang, of the Columbia News Service:
In an effort to make the Civil War more accessible for her students, Leslie Evans-Boxer turned to a Lincoln presenter. Evans-Boxer, 41, relocated to Idaho from Pennsylvania a few years ago to teach refugee and immigrant children at the Boise Language Academy. Living outside of Gettysburg she’d been exposed to Civil War re-enactments and felt that having a performer visit her class might be a good way to excite her students about Lincoln’s legacy. An Internet search for performers in the Boise area turned up Skip Critell. She was dazzled by his performance.

“I opened the door to let him into the classroom and my jaw dropped,” Evans-Boxer recalls. “He looked so much like Lincoln.”

Critell charmed the kids by passing around old artifacts from the era such as marbles and a slate board. He also showed photos of Lincoln’s boyhood home and school books from the time. But the part of his performance that left the children floored was his recitation of the Gettysburg Address from memory.

“This just brought it to life in a fresh way,” said Evans-Boxer. “I’m not sure they’ll remember anything else from this year, except that Lincoln came here.”
