Seven years ago an event arose to celebrate local history and to draw tourists to learn Oakland’s historical link to Lincoln.  Lincoln’s Trial and Tribulations, the dinner/theater program founded by Landmarks, Inc. and Independence Pioneer Village, accomplished just that receiving compliments from Lincoln scholars, gaining recognition as one of four Signature Events for the Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area and Looking For Lincoln, and drawing people from throughout the Midwest. With success and time also comes changes, and this year the program includes a new venue, caterer, actors, schedule and expanded associated programming.
