Special Event: Fort Talkers–From Pigs Feet to a President’s Death: What a time at Fort Monroe!

December 15, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

Scandals, monarchs and presidents!
Come hear the stories of Fort Monroe you won’t hear elsewhere, presented by our Museum Specialist.

Join us for a fascinating look at what was happening at Fort Monroe in 1881. This unique presentation will take you on a journey through time weaving together stories about the oddities of 19th century entertainment, scandalous marriage, a monarch’s visit, and the last months of the nation’s commander-in-chief. There is a little of everything for everyone, ripped from the newspapers headlines, and witnessed by the local community.
