The Affray: Lincoln's Last Murder Case written by Bob Bray and Jared Brown

The McLean County Museum of History, in partnership with Illinois Voices Theatre, will present The Affray: Lincoln’s Last Murder Case, which is an original dramatization of Abraham Lincoln’s successful defense of Peachy Quinn Harrison, a young Springfield resident who was accused of the murder of Greek Crafton. The trial took place just months before Lincoln accepted the Republican nomination for the presidency.
