A Visit with Great Presidents
Today we headed out to Forest Lawn in Hollywood Hills. As part of the Forest Lawn Museum’s History Comes Alive series, “A Visit with Great Presidents” was an interactive educational program that consists of some of America’s greatest presidents engaging each other and the audience in a discussion on their personal and presidential lives as they relate to certain themes in American History. We got to meet with Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. They did such a good job of acting the parts. After each president’s presentation, there was a question and answer segment for the audience. Of course Austin and Faith had many questions for them since we are studying the early presidents in history right now. It was very entertaining and educational.
