He returned to civilian life, but was soon called to command the new National Guard unit in Caldwell, Ohio. He taught high school in Belle Valley and Summerfield before joining the staff at Zanesville High School. After 22 years, he retired from teaching, and for many years entertained in nursing homes, schools, and on stage and television in Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, and Kentucky, portraying the life and times of our sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln.
