A Presidential Visit Lincoln Impersonator Meets, Greets Millburn Third-Graders


Just in time for Abraham Lincoln's birthday, the country's 16th president paid a visit to third-graders at Millburn West Elementary School in Lindenhurst Friday.

Robert Rotgers, the Lincoln impersonator, certainly looked the part.

The Wauwatosa, Wis., man has even been featured in the June 2005 issue of Time Magazine for his uncanny resemblance to honest Abe.

Rotgers gave a speech about the president's life and also took some time to sign autographs for the students.
