Abraham Lincoln Exhibit Visits WVU Campus

MORGANTOWN -

Abraham Lincoln was alive and well Thursday evening at the West Virginia University Erikson Alumni Center.

The university is playing host to a national exhibit exploring Lincoln's constitutional​ challenges during the Civil War.

There also was a presentation from a Lincoln impersonator who said there would be no West Virginia without Lincoln.

"Certainly, I, or Abraham Lincoln, had a lot to do with that," said Michael Krebs, an Abraham Lincoln presenter. "After he had done his research into the constitutionality of it and recognized that the legislatures of Virginia had properly voted for this to happen."

Krebs will play Lincoln in the movie "Field of Lost Shoes" set to come out sometime in late 2013.
