October 3: Fort Frederica: History Comes Alive on Beautiful St Simons Island!
Three years after founding Georgia in 1733, Gen. James Edward Oglethorpe established Fort Frederica to defend the fledgling colony against Spanish attack from Florida. The first settlers in Georgia arrived in 1733. Sailing up the Savannah River, they established a settlement on a defensible bluff that General Oglethorpe selected for that reason. He would spend the next ten years working to make the colony succeed. Georgia's fate was decided in 1742 when Spanish and British forces clashed on St. Simons Island. Fort Frederica's troops defeated the Spanish, ensuring Georgia's future as a British colony. Today, the archeological remnants of Frederica are protected by the National Park Service. Join us as we learn about this beautiful islandthat is both a popular vacation spot as well as an important time and place in US History.
October 10: Music of the Sea at The Mystic!
“What shall we do with a drunken sailor?” Join us with one of our favorite partners, The Mystic Seaport Museum as we listen and learn! We will hear all about the history of sea chanteys and their use, as we listen along in interactive songs with a live musician!
Sing along with one of the museum’s renowned musician educators, as the chantey staff can make sailors’ work come alive with stories told through music. We will join with crew members as they sing a chorus, picture the events in a ballad or use a chantey as a tool to help accomplish hard work like raising the sail or swabbing the deck!
October 17: American History, Alive in Stone: Mt Rushmore!
Majestic figures of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, surrounded by the beauty of the Black Hills of South Dakota, tell the story of the birth, growth, development and preservation of The United States. From the history of the first inhabitants to the diversity of America today, Mount Rushmore brings visitors face to face with the rich heritage we all share. Join us as we discover the carving history and current conditions of Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
October 24: Wind Cave National Park: Discover Two Parks in One!
Wind Cave National Park protects two very different worlds - one deep within the earth, the other a sunlit world of many resources. Bison, elk, and other wildlife roam the rolling prairie grasslands and forested hillsides of one of America's oldest national parks. Below the remnant island of intact prairie sits Wind Cave, one of the longest and most complex caves in the world. Join us as we learn more about this beautiful national park!
