Encore: Reflections on the Great War
Jul 10 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Encore: Reflections on the Great War @ The Chelsea | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

If you missed this great presentation in May, here is another opportunity! Mark Sandvigen’s lively presentation sold out early the first time, so be sure to act quickly on this second chance!

It has been 100 years since World War I, the “War to End All Wars”. Mark Sandvigen will join the New Bern Historical Society once again at the Chelsea Restaurant July 10 at 11:30am for Lunch & Learn with a look back from the United States entry into WWI in 1917 to the return of our service men and women in 1919. His presentation, A Distant Mirror: Craven County and Reflections on the Great War, 1917-1920, is a Craven County story as well as North Carolina story covering the impact of the War and how it changed every facet of our lives. This is not a presentation about dates and battles but rather a thoughtful look at society as a whole and how the War brought changes in almost everything: what we thought about, our patriotic values, what was popular, what was funny, what was known and what we would find out. This was presented in May and sold out quickly, so be sure to get your reservations early!
Mark Sandvigen, a retired U.S. Naval Officer and senior executive for several Fortune 500 companies, brings a unique perceptive to this forgotten chapter in our history. Mark’s interest in the Great War began with his Grandfather who fought in the 91st Pine Tree Division during the 100 days leading to the Armistice. Pursuing his Grandfather’s legacy led to walking the battlefields and trenches of the Western Front along with visiting the WWI memorials and museums of the allied powers. His investigations and perspective will provide an illuminating, and sometimes amusing look at the home and military life of North Carolinians and New Bernians of that era.
Lunch & Learn starts at 11:30 a.m. at The Chelsea Restaurant, 335 Middle Street, New Bern. The cost is $17 for Historical Society members and $22 for non-members; lunch is included.
Advance reservations must be made by calling the New Bern Historical Society at 252-638-
8558, or can be ordered at www.NewBernHistorical.org/tickets.

July 12, 13, 19, 20 @ 7:30pm,

July 14, 21 @ 2:00pm, 2019

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.”

Rated PG-13 for language and adult content.

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.
