New program scheduled:
We don't usually have a program in Dec but this is an exception:
"Rehearsal for War: the U.S./ Mexico Border Conflict & the Hunt for Pancho Villa."
Using period uniforms, artifacts, and equipment, materiél historians Cori Santagate and Myric McBain will discuss the crisis between the United States and revolutionary Mexico between 1910 and 1918, General Pershing's expedition to capture Pancho Villa, and how the crisis prepared the U.S. Army and National Guard for mass mobilization during the First World War. McBain and Santagate also will emphasize the rolls of the New Hampshire and Vermont National Guard units during the border crisis.
PLEASE NOTE! There is no snow date for this program at this time.
Open Saturdays 1-4
