- James Getty as our 16th President
- Lincoln’s life a personal experience instead of a history lesson
Abraham Lincoln, portrayed by James Getty, “Mr. Lincoln Returns To Gettysburg” at The Battle Theater.
Featuring James Getty as our 16th President, this performance allows you to listen to Lincoln’s homespun stories of his youth, his recollections of his personal and political life, and his special anguish for Gettysburg.
James Getty has portrayed Abraham Lincoln in Gettysburg since 1978, and has also been featured on television, and in special appearances throughout the United States and Canada.
A New York newspaper said he “gives a warm, enjoyable performance; he makes Lincoln’s life a personal experience instead of a history lesson. It is the one attraction in Gettysburg not to be missed!”
