Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln at the Geneva History Center

Celebrate President's Day "Visiting the Lincolns" at the Geneva History Center.

Be one of the unexpected guests at the Lincoln White House on the eve of the president's assassination and catch the First Family unaware.  The Geneva History Center presents "Visiting the Lincolns", 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 19.

The Lincolns entertain as best they can with anecdotes and yarns. Though relieved that the Civil War is over, Mary is overcome with grief from the loss of two of her young sons. To comfort her, Abraham vows to continue the struggle for which so much was sacrificed. Witness the touching humor and deep love shared between this legendary couple. In the end, they both confront the losses in their own lives.
This 60-minute program will be followed by questions and answers and a meet-and-greet featuring the talents of Michael Krebs and Debra Miller. Krebs has portrayed Lincoln on C-SPAN, The History Channel, and in Springfield. Miller has appeared at The Goodman, The Royal George and 15 years with Krebs. The performance is suitable for all ages.

Reservations are required and seating is limited: $20/each, $15/Geneva History Center Member, $10/student, and complimentary for GHC Herrington Circle Members and includes a certificate for $10 off a $20 purchase at The Little Traveler.
