"I also remember the drama we presented depicted in the photo. It was a civil war scenario. We were wounded soldiers and Steve Joachim, in the tall hat, played Abraham Lincoln. We sang Swing Low Sweet Chariot. We did not quit our day jobs, however, to become full-time thespians or musicians. " - Joe Gordon
