July 15, 2019

Miller's_Abraham Lincoln Bible July 2019Danny Russel of Indianapolis educated the residents and guests of Miller’s Assisted Living in his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln.  Russel dressed in authentic, period costume as he took his audience on an adventure of Lincoln’s life from his boyhood in Indiana all the way to the White House and his signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.
