Stephen Howell, formerly of the pastoral staff of the Calvert Grace Brethren church in Owings, MD (Robert Wagner, pastor), reports that “A citation of $50 was given to my son at the Lincoln Memorial on this President’s Day. He resembles Lincoln and decided to dress up as our 16th President and recite the Gettysburg address. Some tourists asked for pictures and gave tips. The citation was given for solicitation on Federal property without a permit.”
