A Sea Change: Naval Warfare in the American Revolution in the Spring of 1778 with Dr. Dennis Conrad
It was the Spring of 1778, the small Continental Navy was pitted against the greatest navy in the world, The Royal Navy. How could they hope to compete with this vastly superior foe? Did David (the Continental Navy) have any chance against Goliath (the Royal Navy)? Join us on Monday, May 9th, as we welcome Dr. Dennis Conrad, a historian at the Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC) as he presents A Sea Change: Naval Warfare in the American Revolution in the Spring of 1778. This talk is about America's naval heritage and the changes in the nature of naval warfare during the American Revolution. Dr. Conrad also describes how ships from the colonies, then called the Continental Navy, fought not just in the Atlantic but also saw action as far away as the Mediterranean Sea and the Indian Ocean.

Charlie Zahm “An Evening of Colonial Music” Tuesday, July 19th, 2016.
This event ONLY $39 July 19th, 2016. Year after year, Charlie Zahm's voice, musicianship, extensive musical repertoire, and stage presence make him one of the most popular performers at festivals, music events, house concerts, and many other venues. Charlie Zahm brings the spirit of the American Revolution and the drama of the age to an audience like few musicians can. Whether he is singing the glories of gallant General Washington, an ode to the great new ideal of “Liberty,” songs of battles won or lost, or just popular selections of the times, Charlie calls on a robust baritone, mastery of guitar (and other instruments), and a seasoned approach to the art of “entertaining” to provide a program enjoyed by all.
