Travel Class “The Civil War Through Different Lenses (for 2015)”
Introduction—Over the years, our Senior Center Civil Warriors have walked most every Civil War battlefield in the Old Dominion. This class, however, explores some of the innumerable other non-battle-related topics that make our country’s fratricidal war so interesting! Join us to discover: the amazing images of Civil War naval personnel; the talented engineers who mapped the war; the strange fate of Jefferson’s Monticello during the conflict; the role plantation slavery played in the massive upheaval; how Grant & Lee terminated the bloody war in Virginia; and the meaning of the Sesquicentennial—the 150th Anniversary—to the National Park Service. How did it differ from the Centennial? 
Our Lecturers—National Park Service Historian Beth Parnicza, veteran NPS Historian Ron Wilson (who worked at Appomattox 25 years), Military Historian & Tour Guide Dale Floyd, Civil War Historian & New York Times Contributing Author Ron Coddington, Slavery Historian Leni Sorensen, and Civil War Historian Rick Britton.

*** Thursday, May 7th – Travel Session: A day-trip to Civil War sites in Harpers Ferry & nearby Charles Town, West Virginia!

After lunch in Charles Town, we’ll hop over to gorgeous Harpers Ferry and take in John Brown’s Fort, the Jefferson Rock, and all of the historic town’s wonderful museums.

Day Trips: Riverside Dinner Theatre - 9 to 5

Wednesday, April 1, 2015 at 9:21am

Details:

Join us for a delightful musical at The Riverside.  Pushed to the boiling point at their workplace, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the egotistical, hypocritical bigot they call their boss.  In an ingenious conspiracy to plan control of the company, the girls discover that there’s nothing they can’t do - even in a late-1970’s man’s world.  Adapted from the hit movie with music by Dolly Parton, this outrageous, thought-provoking, and lightly romantic mixture of friendship and revenge in the “Rolodex era” provides a glimpse into taking care of business with a not-so-soft feminine touch.  TV and film star Sally Struthers will return to enhance a stellar cast.  A delicious dinner is included in the price.

Open to all.
