'President Lincoln' returns to Washington

By Michael E. Ruane

"Abraham Lincoln" is returning to Washington Wednesday morning.

In honor of the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Feb. 23, 1861 arrival in Washington, prior to his inauguration, Lincoln portrayer Fritz Klein will arrive on a train from Baltimore, accompanied by National Park Service Director Jon Jarvis.

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is scheduled to meet the train at Union Station when it arrives with the "president elect" at 11:20 a.m., the park service said.

It's all part of the nation's celebration of the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War era, which begins this year.
