COMMUNITY PROJECT GRANT SPOTLIGHT:
Enfield Shaker Museum
Join the Enfield Shaker Museum on February 11 from 7 - 8 pm for a free virtual lecture, “The Howling Storm: Weather, Climate and the American Civil War” by Auburn University Draughon Professor of Southern History Kenneth W. Noe. Noe will discuss how unusual weather events affected both the battlefield and life on the Homefront during the American Civil War.
His talk is the first in the Enfield Shaker Museum’s Community Project Grant supported program, Weather-Wise, which will examine how people in past times and places have understood “the weather.” Stay tuned for more information about future talks, scheduled for March, April, and May, which will look at the 1938 Great New England Hurricane’s impact on the region, how art has grappled with climate change, and early Americans use of almanacs to document changing weather patterns.
