"Abe Lincoln: A Bridge Between Borders" was the theme for this year's winning float in the Campbellsville Fourth of July Celebration's AutoSmart Parade Float Contest.

The float was designed and built by members of Truth Tabernacle United Pentecostal Church. It portrayed aspects of both the North and South during the Civil War era.

On the "South" side of the float, Matt Coomer, dressed as a Confederate soldier, guarded an agricultural scene with cotton fields, pine tress and live chickens in an antique chicken coupe.

On the "North" side of the float, Tim Acree dressed as a Union soldier, guarded a lush garden scene of Central Park.

Keshia Acree, dressed as a northern lady, sat on a park bench between two lampposts. Bright flowers accented the northern scene.

Jordan Clark, dressed as Abe Lincoln, stood in the middle of a wooden bridge, representing the president who bridged the North and the South during the Civil War.

Truth Tabernacle United Pentecostal Church is located at 4607 Old Lebanon Road. Weekly services are Sunday at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Wednesdays at 7 p.m.
