Dale Fellows portrayed President George Washington on Thursday night at the Amherst Public Library. He is part of the Presidential Living Historians Group, which reenacts past presidents including Washington, Lincoln, Garfield, Grant, and Taft. Fellows gave a 20-minute presentation to the library audience as if the real George Washington were in the room. After that he broke character for a question-and-answer session.
