Copper Fox Distillery Lecture Series
February 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Our Lecture Series continues on Wednesday, February 15th, with Dr. John Broadwater’s presentation on the USS Monitor.
The second in a 3 part series on the famous ironclad, whose 1862 engagement with ironclad CSS Virginia (AKA Merrimac) off Newport News changed the nature of naval warfare worldwide.
Dr. Broadwater of Williamsburg led the joint U.S.Navy/National Oceanographic
and Atmospheric Administration operation to recover the turret, engine, and many other artifacts.
Naval warfare buffs, amateurs and professionals involved in maritime archaeology, and Civil War aficionados will be intrigued and informed by Dr. Broadwater’s book:
USS Monitor: A Historic Ship Completes Its Final Voyage
Books will be available for purchase.
All proceeds go to the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.
After the presentation, there will be a Q&A session.
901 Capitol Landing Road
The lectures are free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-served.
