After Freedom’s band serenaded the crowd with tunes from bygone times, guests were escorted into a multipurpose room subdivided by booths depicting decades from 1900 to 2010.
Guests were greeted with a handshake from students dressed as historical characters, complete with a brief but fun biography of the person.
On this evening, one might shake hands with a U.S. president, a groundbreaking business person or an early sports figure.
The middle of the room, historical events such as civil rights and anti-war demonstrations were depicted.
