Pub History at Abolitionist Ale Works
September 19, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT| Pay-What-You-Please
What goes better together than beer and history?
Join the staff of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine at Abolitionist Ale Works in Charles Town, West Virginia on Thursday, September 19 at 7:00 PM for the latest installment in the “Pub History” series!
Join us on September 19, shortly after the 157th anniversary of the Battle of Harpers Ferry just a few miles from where it happened at Abolitionist Ale Works.
From September 12 – 15 a Confederate Army under the command of Stonewall Jackson surrounded a Union garrison at Harpers Ferry, Virginia (today West Virginia). The three day siege led to the largest surrender of United States troops during the entire Civil War – 12,500 men. While the battle saw little bloodshed, it dramatically shaped the outcome of the bloodiest day in American history – the Battle of Antietam – just two days later. A short program will cover the story of the battle as well as it’s far reaching impact.
Besides discussing history over a drink, attendees should also get ready for Civil War-themed trivia. Experts and novices alike should find this enjoyable as the questions will range from easy to hard.
Mark this occasion with the National Museum of Civil War Medicine and Abolitionist Ale Works: hear gripping stories of battlefield bravery, test your knowledge of the Civil War with some trivia, win a prize or two, and taste some of the best beer West Virginia has to offer.
The program begins at 7:00 PM at Abolitionist Ale Works.
