Pub History at Abolitionist Ale Works
September 23, 2021 @ 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 23 at 7:00 PM for the latest installment in the “Pub History” series!
Join us on September 23, at Abolitionist Ale Works for an excellent dinner and a drink to hear about what Civil War soldiers would have dined on. People have been drinking alcohol for nearly all of human history, and the Civil War era was no exception. Besides leading many soldiers to mischief, spirits actually played an important role during the conflict. While not used as an anesthetic as many think, it was administered for shock, with bitter tasting medicine, or even as the occasional bribe. You’ll learn all about soldiers’ wartime eating and drinking habits during this short program.
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.
