Jim Scaminaci is the President of the Civil War Round Table of the Ozarks.
He says the actor, Fritz Klein, has been portraying Lincoln since 1980.
The Civil War Round Table of the Ozarks has 93 members and is celebrating its 45th anniversary this year.
Scaminaci says the group meets the second Wednesday of every month at the library center on South Campbell and provides a forum for people to discuss the Civil War.
