Show - The Zula Patrol: Under the Weather

The Lincoln Almanac Trial

This show details how Abraham Lincoln's most famous and controversial case as a trial lawyer was based upon the position of the Moon in the night sky and an almanac that Lincoln produced for the trial. Was Lincoln's almanac factual, or was honest Abe not so honest and fabricated his almanac? We will lay this question to rest, and along the way learn all kinds of great information about the Moon and its orbital charcteristics. (target audience age 10 years - adult)

 

 

This show may be scheduled to view in a private group showing.

Please contact us for more information.

 

Suggested donation for planetarium shows is $5 for adults and $3 for kids
