All times are 2 pm EST 

The programs below are in person live streamed

 at the Senior Center

(we have 5 spaces available for those who cannot attend in person)

 

Valley Forge.jpg

Tues., Nov 22: Valley Forge National Historic Park

When the Continental Army marches into Valley Forge on December 19th, 1777, there have already been two and a half years of the American Revolutionary War. The most recent, mostly unsuccessful Philadelphia Campaign led to the British capture of the American capital, Philadelphia. Learn why the Americans choose Valley Forge as their strategic winter encampment, what happens during the six months after marching in, and what the reorganization, resupply, and rest do for the Continentals as they continue the war for another five years. 

Printing Museum.jpg

Tuesday, Nov 29th:  The Printing Museum

What is printing, and what is its historical impact? In what ways do we continue to see its effect today? Take a virtual trip to The Printing Museum and explore the earliest examples of writing, illuminated texts, and modern-day machines. Learn about the integral role printing had in transforming societies as we journey through the Renaissance, Colonial America, Texas independence from Mexico, and a mid-century newsroom. With demos on the Gutenberg and Columbus presses, visitors can learn the mechanics of printing and its dynamic influence on history, fine art, and communications.

Tues.  Dec 6: FDR Presidential Library and Museum

Christmas at the White House!

If you have ever heard Jeff Urbin share about Christmas at the Roosevelt White House, you’ll know he has plenty to say!

There’s always something new to learn, and we’ll have lots of fun while we’re at it.  Join us for our last program of the year celebrating the holidays with the Roosevelts!

The National Archives.jpg

Tuesday, Dec 13th:  The National Archives:  “ Rightfully Hers”

 

Join us from The National Archives as they share about the American Women and the Fight for the Vote!

 

Using the founding documents of the United States and records of the National Archives, we will learn about how and why women fought for the right to vote. We will explore the challenges suffragists faced and discover why the fight for women’s voting rights persisted even after the ratification of the 19th Amendment.

St. Pauls Church.png

Tuesday, December 20th:  Virtual Tour of St. Paul's Church National Historic Site, Mt. Vernon, NY

With images, documents and live narration, the tour explores the historic significance and cultural features of the 18th century masonry church, which was utilized as a hospital by both sides during the Revolutionary War, and the historic cemetery at St. Paul's, among the nation's oldest, continuously used burial yards. 

We also explore a landmark, open air election at St. Paul's in 1733, which raised issues of freedom of religion, assembly and the press, heralding the importance of those themes in the development of democracy in America.

 This is an in person live stream at the Senior Center.
