Join us for an interactive night of fun as we explore the forensics behind the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln! Following a live re-enactment of the assassination, there will be a two-part investigation of the crime. In the first portion, guests will participate in the examination of the crime scene using forensic methods of the 1860s; in the second portion, guests will hear from a roster of contemporary forensic experts covering everything from ballistics, crime scene investigation, and blood analysis. The activities will be followed by a reception.
