Garden Lecture Series – July
Jul 13 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Garden Lecture Series - July @ Cullman Performance Hall, North Carolina History Center | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

Our July garden lecture series, features Lindy Cummings, Tryon Palace Research Historian, discussing “Fair Flowers: Women Botanists in the Age of Enlightenment and Beyond.”

2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the 19th Amendment, granting universal suffrage rights to women. In celebration of this milestone, the August garden lecture will examine the lives of women who, although denied educational opportunities and legal rights, still made significant contributions to the field of botany in the 18th and 19th centuries. Whether introducing new agricultural staples like rice, as did the young Eliza Lucas in mid-18th century South Carolina or planting the brilliant spider lilies that continue to bloom in New Bern, like Lavinia Cole Roberts, these women overcame social and cultural obstacles to leave their mark on fields traditionally reserved for men.

This lecture is free and begins at 10 a.m. in Cullman Performance Hall at the North Carolina History Center.

Marie Antoinette chronicles the reign, removal, and eventual beheading of France’s most infamous queen. The retelling of France’s iconic but ill-fated queen, Marie Antoinette, comes to life on the NBCT stage with mile high wigs and extravagant dresses. The story follows Marie from her betrothal and marriage to Louis XVI at 15 to her reign as queen at 19 and to the end of her reign as queen, and the fall of Versailles. Join The Saax Bradbury Players as Marie Antoinette delivers one of history’s most famous quotes. At some point around 1789, when being told that her French subjects had no bread, Marie Antoinette supposedly sniffed, “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche” — “Let them eat cake.”

The Fifes and Drums of York Town was formed for the American Bicentennial Celebration in 1976. Today they continue their mission to recruit youth between the age of 10 and 18 and train them in the rudiments and drill of 18th Century field music.

A typical performance season consists of approximately 80 shows, many of which are conducted for the National Park Service and York County, as well as various historic venues along our Eastern seaboard including Mount Vernon, Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Valley Forge Pennsylvania, West Point, New York, and Boston, Massachusetts.

Our members dress in period uniforms. The goal of all members is to promote into the Senior Corps and wear the red regimental uniform reminiscent of the uniform worn by 18th century musicians who served in the Continental Army in Yorktown, Virginia…where Freedom was Won!
