LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The fascination over Abraham Lincoln continues to grow after the Oscar winning portrayal by Daniel Day Lewis. Lincoln's time spent in Louisville at Farmington, and what he witnessed with slavery here, also continues to pull people to our Waterfront to learn more about his connection to this city.

13-year-old Ananiah Burrus is getting a living history lesson from her big sister for the past year, 60-year-old Bonny Weber.

They are both fascinated by Abraham Lincoln and his connection to Louisville. WHAS11’s Doug Proffitt has more on this match, click on the video player above.
