Becoming Lincoln

Michael Griest of Peekskill has been a professional Abraham Lincoln re-enactor for 15 years. To celebrate Lincoln's 204th birthday, he attended a private screening of the movie "Lincoln" that was shown by Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino for 87 -- as in four score and seven -- of his Facebook fans at the Mount Kisco Theater.
