Kentucky Musician Gets Screen Time in 'Lincoln'

When Steven Spielberg's newest film, "Lincoln", was released, Marion County's Don Johnson had a personal reason for going to see it. He's in the movie. Briefly. "For a half a day's shoot, it's less than 10 seconds of glory," Johnson said, with a laugh.

Don Johnson is pictured at Dedication Day, Nov. 19, at Gettysburg. He is wearing a uniform modeled after uniforms worn by the United States Marine Band during the Civil War era. This is the same uniform he and other members of President Lincoln's Own wore in the movie
