Carthage Adds Re-Enactment to Downtown Activities

Carthage, IL – Carthage businessmen might add a play to their Monday night activities on the square. Tyrone Jacoby of the Chamber of Commerce says the performance will deal with Abraham Lincoln's visit to Carthage. He says the group should soon know whether the trial re-enactment will be ready by the first farmers market later this month. Jacoby says the merchants are trying to cross-promote Carthage activitiess with the more than 80,000 tourists who go through the Nauvoo visitors center each year.
