Political campaigns are getting down and dirty. How did this campaign craziness get started? Believe it or not, they have actually gotten more civil over the years.

Don’t believe it? Attend the first program in our "Let's Talk Presidential Elections: Looking Back" series. This will be held in the Community Room on Tuesday, March 22nd, beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Historical Portrayal ProgramIn this historical portrayal program, hear the stories of the mudslinging and muckraking of the Jefferson v. Adams campaign of 1800, the Jackson v. Adams of 1828, the Lincoln v. Douglas of 1860, and Grant v. ANYONE! Also covered in this program is the 1912 campaign when Teddy Roosevelt decided to start his OWN political party.
