Time capsule marks anniversary of Lincoln-Douglas debate

Posted by wlpo on August 21, 2009

151 years ago Friday was the famous Lincoln-Douglas debate in Ottawa.
To mark the occasion, city officials are dedicating a time capsule in Washington Park, site of the first Lincoln-Douglas debate. The ceremony will start at 5pm.
This time last year a capsule was dug up in Washington Square that was buried in 1958.
