Interpreter Fritz Klein looks like Abraham Lincoln, dresses like Abraham Lincoln and talks with the same dialect Lincoln spoke with. For one hour, Klein becomes the United States' 16th President when he performs in front of groups, large and small,  across the country, educating citizens and students about one of this country's most popular and iconic presidents. Klein portrays Lincoln in conjunction with the Lincoln Institute for Education in Springfield, Illinois.  He was photographed at the Oklahoma History Center on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2012.   The Oklahoma History Center is hosting Abraham Lincoln for a series of  public performances this week. This special Sesquicentennial program  features nationally known Lincoln interpreter Fritz Klein who brings America's Civil War to life for students and adults and touch on President Lincoln's relationship to Indian tribes.  This first-person living history event  puts the war into context while  highlighting connections to the people of 19th Century Oklahoma.  Special performances for student groups are Thursday, Feb. 9 and  Friday Feb. 10.  Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
