We are delighted to announce that Christian Johnson, an AHT favorite, has come back. Johnson is known predominantly for excelling in performance as Abraham Lincoln, and William Penn, but had a long list of characters under his belt including Charles Wilson Peale and Governor William Livingston. We consider ourselves very lucky to once again add him to our roster of talented performers.
About Dr. Newell: Dr. William Augustus Newell, a former US Congressman from Monmouth County, served as Governor of New Jersey and was the private physician to President Abraham Lincoln and his family. In 1848 Newell passed an act to create the United States Life Saving Service, now known as the US Coast Guard, along the coast of Monmouth County. In 1860 President Lincoln appointed him the superintendent of the Life Saving Service. Close friends with the Lincolns, he escorted Mary Todd Lincoln to her summer vacation, at Long Branch, a year later.
