Freeport Debate Reenactors

Over the decades, Freeport has had a series of individuals who portray Lincoln and Douglas, both together and individually. Groups, schools or organizations wishing to book either or both of the current Douglas or Lincoln can contact them directly.

George Buss has been portraying Abraham Lincoln since the 1980s.

Tim Connors has been portraying Stephen A. Douglas since 2007. His portrayals can be arranged in conjunction with George Buss, or as Douglas alone. He also does portrayals of “Fighting Bob” LaFollette, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, and Franklin D. Roosevelt.
