KENNEWICK, Wash.-  A little Civil War history came to life in Kennewick Monday.  Former President Abraham Lincoln visited with kids and adults in honor of the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.

The Kennewick Library hosted Mr. Lincoln as he shared his recollections of the battle, the events leading up to it and its aftermath, including the famous Gettysburg Address.

Keith Deaton of Kennewick is a renowned interpreter of Abraham Lincoln and has portrayed him all over the northwest for the last 20 years.
