HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Dennis Boggs, of Donelson, is the spitting image of Abraham Lincoln.

He visits schools, senior centers and community groups to share the story of the 16th President.

"[It] never gets old," said Boggs.

On Wednesday, one week after what would have been Lincoln's 211th birthday, Boggs presented the life of the president to students at Gene Brown Elementary School in Hendersonville.

"They want to know so much. They are just starving for this stuff and that's my favorite stuff," Boggs said.

For more than 20 years, the Middle Tennessee man has traveled around the country presenting the life of the 19th Century leader.

"I know what I'm going to tell them, but when I finish, I have a Q&A and I never know what they are going to ask," Boggs said.
