The Professor of Prestidigitation: Civil War Era Magic

A performer for more than 50 years, Dr. Charisse performs and recreates Civil War era magic in a program of humor, history and mystery. This evening of classic conjuring is sure to enchant audiences of all ages, as the professor introduces his audiences to the ghost of a Civil War soldier and performs what he believes to be President Lincoln’s favorite magic effect. The hand may be quicker than the eye, but it is the minds and hearts of his audiences the professor touches in his edifying program of education and entertainment.

The Gettysburg Heritage Center offers several special programs throughout the year. Be sure to visit our website for additional programs including living history camps, lectures, musical performances and much more!
