The annual “A Toast to George Washington” event hosted by Minnesota Masonic Charities and the Minnesota Masonic Heritage Society will this year highlight the Great Debates of 1858 – a series of seven debates between then-candidate for the U.S. Senate from Illinois, Abraham Lincoln, and the incumbent Senator Stephen A. Douglas. Bringing the retrospective to life will be acclaimed actor-interpreters George Buss as Lincoln and Tim Connors as Douglas. Buss has served for 30 years as a Lincoln interpreter and recently was named to deliver the Address annually at Gettysburg. Connors has performed as Douglas for nearly a decade and appeared at all seven original debate sites during the 2008 Sesquicentennial of the Debates. The two have appeared together on numerous occasions to reprise the roles.
