Robert Brugler Press Release for President Lincoln
Robert is a nationally recognized Lincoln presenter and historian with over 12 years of experience and has given hundreds of appealing and thought-provoking presentations.
With his uncanny resemblance to Abe; from his 6’4” height, authentically styled beard, stove pipe hat, 1860s era clothing and scholarly knowledge, audiences believe they are visiting with Old Abe himself.
Hope Taft, Former First Lady of Ohio

Dr. Rick Weil, The White House - Member of President Reagan's Staff
