Lawyers, Guns, and Money: putting territorial laws on trial
March 21 @ 6:00 pm - March 23 @ 9:30 pmFree
Theater with a Mission (TWAM) takes you back to the Florida Territorial legislature’s most infamous moments as “Lawyers, Guns and Money 1824” dramatizes ideas for laws, duels, and debates that made history during Tallahassee’s earliest legislative seasons.
TWAM uses these 200-year-old laws to showcase untold stories about impacts and importance of laws to the multicultural, multiethnic citizens of Florida, bringing the past into the present.
Performances begin in conjunction with the free early Tallahassee history symposium held by the Tallahassee Historical Society at Mission San Luis on Thursday and Friday, March 21 and 22.
Debates relocate in conjunction with TCC’s Tallahassee History Festival, Kleman Plaza during the day on Saturday, March 23.
This adventure in the perils of lawmaking climaxes with a free public party in the Capitol Plaza, Saturday night March 23.
