West Meck Debate Team to re-try historic court cases

The West Mecklenburg High School Debate Team will lead the Kids’ Court Saturday, March 19, as they re-enact the trials of three historic Mecklenburg County cases.

Those attending will get the chance to act as jury. After the cases, Latta Plantation will re-enact a famous duel.

Admission to Latta costs $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and $5 for students. Children 5 and younger get in free.

Several local girl scouts who studied at Latta Plantation in March will return April 2 to demonstrate what they learned to others. They’ll give house tours, show off their English country dancing skills and explain open-hearth cooking, weaving, sewing and making cornhusk dolls. Admission is $6.
