A 2,000-mile quest by St. Mary's University history students is chronicled in the documentary film, “25 Texans in The Land of Lincoln.” The film illuminates for Texas audiences their effort to repatriate to Mexico the leg that once belonged to Mexican general Antonio López de Santa Anna and to honor Abraham Lincoln for his support of Mexico and Mexicans.

The St. Mary's Department of History invites everyone to join the students at the screenings at the Tobin Center Thursday, Aug. 1 at 9 a.m., and Saturday, Aug. 3 at 3 p.m.

Tickets are $10 and available online. To purchase tickets, visit safilm.com.
