This program is FREE
 
 
After you listen to the events that led up to Lincoln’s assassination, her involvement with John Wilkes Booth and the other conspirators, her arrest, her own testimony and others at the military trial, you can decide for yourself. Will you agree with the American boarding house owner when she says, "I should not have died on July 7, 1865. I was innocent."
 
For further information or reservations—which are required by Monday, Oct. 28—call 847-825-1161, ext. 129.
 
Light refreshments will be served. Those who attend are eligible for the Summit Guest Rewards Program which offers opportunities to earn rewards and prizes such as gift cards or lunch or brunch for two at Summit.
