Rescheduled February 17th Meeting

“Civil War Ironclads”
The February meeting will be held on February 17, 2015 (3rd Tuesday).
Michael Durling & Gina DeAngelis from Colonial Williamsburg will present the film - “Civil War
Ironclads”: from the Colonial Williamsburg Electronic Field Trip Series.
In the Civil War, both the Union and the Confederacy raced to build armored, steam-powered warships that were the ancestors of today’s navies. In the program, you can meet the people behind and aboard the “ironclads”—and relive the famous 1862 battle between the Monitor and the Merrimack (Virginia).
CIVIL WAR IRONCLADS (Colonial Williamsburg Productions, 2014) is an Electronic Field Trip—an interactive educational program with video, live television, and online components—created by Colonial Williamsburg Education Outreach and produced and broadcast by Colonial Williamsburg Productions. It premiered on March 13, 2014 on public television and cable educational channels nationwide.
