Buchanan’s First Challenges: A Dose of Hotel Disease & The Dred Scott Decision

February 20 @ 10:00 am3:00 pm

$8 – $15

Join us on a journey back to February 1857. During your tour you will “visit” both Wheatland and the White House in 1857.  At Wheatland you will bear witness to James Buchanan’s encounter with a mysterious disease he contracted in January while staying in Washington, DC.  Moving along to President Buchanan’s White House after his March 1857 inauguration, you will be party to the struggle faced by the President and his advisors as they discuss how to manage the nation’s reaction to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Dred Scott case.

The Presidents Day Living History at Wheatland takes place on Monday, February 20, 2017 with tours on the hour at 10am, 11am, 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm. We strongly advise making reservations in advance for your tour since tours do fill up and walk-in space is not guaranteed. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your tour so you may use the facilities and check in.
