A one-act theater presentation

A little-known episode of history: 24-year-old Matias Romero, as charge d’affairs of the Mexican legation in Washington, traveled to Springfield to meet President-Elect Lincoln in January, 1861. This presentation begins with that meeting and continues through the Presidential years in Washington as the two communicate about the relationship between the United States and Mexico during a very tumultuous time. Romero became the first Mexican Ambassador to the United States. Richard ‘Fritz’ Klein wrote the piece and portrays President Lincoln. Chicago actor Carlo Lorenzo Garcia portrays Matias Romero. Phil Funkenbusch directs.

Following the play, guests may view the "Lincoln to Romero Letter" in the Treasures Gallery.
