We have a very special episode this week as we stage a debate between President Martin Van Buren and General William Henry Harrison in the 1840 presidential campaign. The back and forth gets heated at times, but the two candidates manage to maintain their decorum so that this debate is suitable for all audiences. Gather the kids together and sit back as the two candidates talk about some of the issues of the day in their own words.
