Abraham Lincoln, played by Living History actor Ken Boswell, talked about his life to the entire second-grade class at Theuerkauf Elementary School on Feb. 7.
As a child, Lincoln had no running water and spent days traveling over bumpy, uneven land without roads. When he became president, he was inspired to invest in American infrastructure, like railroads, he told the kids gathered in the school's library.
"We like to allow the kids to build connections between themselves and the historic figure," said Wendy Yee, founder of the program that travels to many South Bay and Peninsula schools.
