Last minute addition to Wednesday’s Lincoln programs for kids and families

Civil War reenactors

This just in!  In addition to the activities already scheduled for this Wednesday evening, children will also have the opportunity to meet and talk to 3 Civil War reenactors between 6:30 and 7:45.  Did you ever want to get a close look at a Union soldier’s uniform or ask about soldiers’ everyday lives?  This is your chance!

The evening will also feature a hands-on exhibit of Civil War artifacts, actors portraying President and Mrs. Lincoln, and a Little Lincoln and Little Mary Todd Look-Alike Contest.  All programs are free and open to all ages, and are drop-in except for the Look-Alike Contest (children can register ahead of time or that evening).

The special exhibit Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War will be up until late June, but these programs for children and families are one night only.  Don’t miss it!  Please join us Wednesday, May 20, starting at 6:00 p.m.
