This event is free and open to the public. The community is encouraged to see the event, featuring faculty and students from Western Wyoming Community College dressed in period clothing and playing some of the witnesses and jury members.
This event is sponsored by Western’s History and Performing Arts Department, the University of Wyoming, and The Spence Law firm.
