Back in 18-58 Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas were heating things up in their debates for the U-S Senate. One of those debates was held just down the street in Freeport… And to keep that history alive... The city is re-constructing 'debate square'.
Lincoln gained such a following from the debates that many say it paved his way toward winning the white house... Plans for debate square include a series of walkways made out of old city streets... And a series of signs to let passers-by know the history surrounding them.
