The Gala will be held at the Harris-Kearney House Museum, 4000 Baltimore. Admission is $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for children (12 and under) and tickets will be available at the door. Both Presidents Lincoln and Davis eptimosized the sacrifice and devotion of their respective citizenry during the turmoil of the American Civil War. As national leaders in their own right, both presidents suffered the consequences of history. Enjoy an afternoon discussing with both presidents their careers, family, and pre-1863 events within the pomp-and-circumstance of American political history. The Presidential Gala is an event in the Westport Historical Society’s ongoing commemoration of the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War.
