GREENSBORO, N.C. -- People waited in line for hours on Sunday to get free tickets for the First Lady's visit  at UNC-Greensboro on Wednesday.

"I feel like its history being made," said Paul Stewart, a Obama support while waiting in line.

"We've been here since 11:15 a.m. We came directly from church because it's important we hear our First Lady," said Dianne Edgerton Norman, who waited in line for hours.

Michelle Obama will speak at UNCG's Fleming Gymnasium at 1:15 p.m. to campaign for her husband's 2012 election.

The event is free and open to the public. However, tickets are required due to limited space.

Tickets can be picked up at  campaign offices at 229 N. Greene St., in Greensboro, 122A N. Main St., in Burlington, 652 N Main St., in High Point, and 633 W. 4th Street, Suite 110, in Winston-Salem and are available on a first come, first serve basis.
