Many of us are aware of the sights and sounds of the American Civil War.  But few are aware of the role played by Religion and the churches before the start of the American Civil War. What was the role of Chaplain’s and how did they handle military life and battle?  Come join presenter Worley H. Smith for a morning discussion on the Fighting Parsons plus much more.

Come join us as Dossin Ship Museum Associate, Steve Mrozek, brings us back in time to November’s Great Storm of 1913, where over 250 Great Lakes sailors met their fate as 19 ships went down in one of the worst storms recorded. Then jump ahead to November of 1975 as we join the crew of the Edmund Fitzgerald as it too slips beneath the waves carrying with it the lives of all 29 aboard. Guaranteed to be an exciting night for all those who love the history of our Great Lakes.

No registration required, but seating is limited.
