The Civil War era comes to life Saturday night for the Twilight Cemetery Tour at 7 p.m., Saturday, April 24 at the Alamo Cemetery. Look for costumed interpreters representing historic families and listen as they voice their strongly held opinions about the Civil War.
Visitors will also experience a spectral visit by a famous president. Finish the tour by listening to Danville Poet Laureate Nancy Fraze, who will keep guests spellbound with her recitation of Vachal Lindsay's famous poem Abraham Lincoln Walks at Midnight.
Participants should meet at the front gate of the Cemetery located at the end of El Portal near La Gonda Way in Danville. A $3 per person donation is requested. For more information, go to www.museumsrv.org or call 837-3750.
This is just one of many events being held in conjunction with the Museum of the San Ramon Valley's current exhibit, Abraham Lincoln: "Now He belongs to the Ages" on loan from the Lincoln Presidential Museum, runs through May 7 at the restored Danville Train Depot, 205 Railroad Ave.
