Along with the upcoming 200th
anniversary of Lincoln's birthday is the 150th anniversary of the
Lincoln-Douglas debates. History will be recalled and brought to
life at Lincoln College when "Reunion Tour '08" performs on Saturday
at 7 p.m. in the Johnston Center for Performing Arts.
"Reunion Tour '08" looks back at the Lincoln-Douglas debates of
1858 in the style of a modern-day press conference where actors
reminisce, wrangle and field questions from the audience and a panel
of six local media personalities and history buffs. This performance
promises to bring authentic arguments, undeniable drama and humor.
