Some Knox County students took a step back in time on Friday with a visit from the 16th president.

Abraham Lincoln impersonator John Voehl stopped by several schools as part of a celebration of President's Day.

Students don't have school on the actual holiday, so they celebrated a few days later.

The school system combined the American history study with nutrition by giving the students a whole grain cookie snack that features the likenesses of the US presidents.

The students enjoyed the visit and asked a lot of questions.

"We've had kids ask, 'What did you play with?' 'What toys did your children play with?' 'What year were you elected?' 'Did you ever meet George Washington?'" said Dickl, Knox County Schools Nutrition Director.

The Lincoln look-alike also discussed his vice president, Andrew Johnson, who lived in East Tennessee and became president after Lincoln's assassination
