Lincoln Historians, a group of middle school history buffs, will tell stories about colonial Christmas as part of their History in Action Project for the Tar Heel Junior Historian Association Annual Contest.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 16-17 at the park’s visitor center at 2332 New Garden Road in Greensboro.

Students will discuss: A Colonial Child’s Christmas, Southern Hospitality during Colonial Christmas, Unusual Colonial Christmas Traditions, A Colonial Soldier’s Christmas and A Slave’s Christmas Experience.
