Jim and Teena are next door neighbors.  Jim started portraying Abraham and knew that Teena would be a great Mary Lincoln.  Happily she agreed and they have been a team for 10 years.   Jim and Teena’s presentations are more like a conversation between a husband and wife.  They portray the Lincolns as a loving couple with high aspirations.

They have portrayed the Lincolns at schools, churches and community celebrations.  The presentations are about an hour and they both will answer questions at the end.

For over twenty-five years the McClerrens have presented “A Visit with the Lincolns” throughout the United States, including Hawaii, adapting their presentations to all ages and kinds of audiences.  The Illinois Humanities Council in Chicago aptly advertised their program as “A Lincoln Primer for all ages.”

An audience member commented, “From the moment we first met until concluding remarks, the essence of both Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln filled our auditorium with warm resonance and our hearts with compassion and renewed respect….  Masterful interpretation by two powerful presenters afforded us a rare glimpse into their lives and times and made us all thankful to have walked through history in their footsteps.”
