Jim Beckwith will present the story of the most famous racehorses of the 19th century and talk about their connections to North Carolina 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Wilson County Public Library.

Beckwith, a retired professor of law from N.C. Central University, weaves this drama into a tale of gambling, heartbreak, politics and horsemanship as he tells the story of these famous horses set before the backdrop of the maturing young republic.
