The Association of Lincoln Presenters

Our Mission

The Association of Lincoln Presenters (ALP) is an organization of men and women dedicated to bringing Abraham and Mary Lincoln to life. Through presentations that educate, entertain, and inspire, members honor the words and works of the Lincolns. The ALP mission is to preserve the legacy of Abraham and Mary Lincoln, to honor their words and works, and walk in their footsteps.

There are over 1500 Abraham Lincoln sites on the Internet. Only this site, however, can bring 150 living “Lincolns” directly to you! As seen on C-SPAN in the Lincoln Douglas debates reenactment, schools, plays, historical societies, movies, parades and celebrations throughout the world for more than a decade….

We are ready, willing and Abe L.

If you are visiting this site looking for someone to appear at your meeting, performance, celebration or event as President Lincoln, Mary Lincoln, or both, or even one of the other historic figures we count among our members, you have come to the right place. Look around and you are likely to find exactly what you need, perhaps closer than you might expect.

If you portray President or Mrs. Lincoln or any other historic figure, look around and see what we have to offer. You can look at our history, including our past conferences. We gather each year for an annual conference in April to visit and to learn about the Lincolns and to polish our craft.  Our newsletters are titled Lincarnations and Mary’s Velvet Rose.  Our web page allows us to share our knowledge and our experiences. Join us!

2025 ALP Conference Kalamazoo, MI

April 24-27, 2025

The ALP’s 2025 Annual Conference – our 29th – will be held from Thursday evening, April 24 through Sunday morning, April 27 in Kalamazoo, MI.  Not only is Kalamazoo the only place in Michigan where Abraham Lincoln made a public appearance and gave a speech, but his trip there in 1856 was the only time he left Illinois during a nearly two-year period when the political landscape of the nation was being transformed.

In recent years there has been a strong local movement in Kalamazoo to commemorate Lincoln’s 1856 visit and build upon his legacy of character, achievement, and leadership.  This effort has been spearheaded by the non-profit Kalamazoo Lincoln Institute (“KLI”) under the theme of “Bring Lincoln Back to Kalamazoo”.  Among other things, a statue of Lincoln was installed in Bronson Park, the site of Lincoln’s speech, in August 2023.  In addition to the KLI, other local organizations which are expected to collaborate in bringing the ALP to Kalamazoo are Discover Kalamazoo (the CVB), the Kalamazoo County Historical Society, and the Kalamazoo Valley Museum.  Our conference will “bring Lincoln back to Kalamazoo” in a way they never imagined!
