His work has been seen by millions - most recently in the Stephen Spielberg film “Lincoln” - but this Hagerstown native might not be easily recognized despite his appearances in scores of movies, television shows and commercials. With a beard that is more salt than pepper, Christopher Boyer does bring to mind Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, the role he plays in “Lincoln,” a part that producers had to go to the West Coast to fill. Shelly Strong, a producer for DreamWorks Studios and another former Washington County resident, told Boyer they were having trouble finding an actor to play Lee, Boyer said during a recent visit back home.

Lincoln's 2006 Mark LT is the James Bond of pickups. It's poised and impeccably dressed, but when time comes for handling the rough stuff, it's up for the task. Unlike Lincoln's Blackwood from a few years back, which looked slick but was lacking in utility, the Mark LT is a bona fide full-size pickup with a usable 5.5-foot bed. Making life easy for the truck's designers, the vehicle's foundation was conveniently borrowed from Ford's popular F-150 pickup. While the family resemblance is there, using signature Lincoln touches, designers did a good job in differentiating the four-door Mark LT from its SuperCrew siblings.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Dr. James Oliver Horton said that when he moved to Virginia 27 years ago, he was surprised to find that the Civil War was still very much alive there. "People would talk about it as if it was still going on," he said. Virginians often referred to the Civil War as "the late unpleasantness. " Horton, a panelist on The History Channel's weekly program "The History Center," addressed attendees of the "Lincoln and His Era: Myths and Realities" seminar at the Four Points Sheraton in Chambersburg on Saturday.

How many of you have seen the movie “Lincoln” produced and directed by Steven Spielberg? If you haven't, make sure you do. The movie is a “tour de force” in the art of the possible and how “politics” work. There are many points to be made in a film like “Lincoln.” Spielberg and his cast make many; however, I want to focus on one. Abraham Lincoln, just re-elected to a second term as the 16th president of the United States, wanted to back up his audacious action to “free the slaves in the States in rebellion” (the Emancipation Proclamation)

It was a depressing night for General Lee. Harpers Ferry had not collapsed. The South Mountain gaps could not be held. Trapped in Pleasant Valley was one-fifth of his force. His army remained scattered, separated - and stunned. Lee had no choice. He must cancel the invasion. “The day has gone against us,” Lee's orders read. “This army will go by Sharpsburg and cross the river.” The Confederate invasion had crumbled. Just 36 hours earlier, Lee postured in Hagerstown, preparing to pounce across the Pennsylvania border.
