April 13, 2021 , 6:00pm 7:00pm

One hundred and nine years ago, Titanic, the great ship deemed to be unsinkable, did in fact sink (sorry for the spoiler!). We commemorate the tragedy with an exploration of those who lost their lives at sea, and some that survived, who are memorialized at Green-Wood. You will hear about Wyckoff Van Derhoef and William Augustus Spencer who sadly never made it ashore in New York City, as well as Douglas Spedden, one of the youngest Titanic survivors with a sad tale of his own. We have all seen the movie, now discover the truth behind this doomed voyage.

While we can’t actually bring the bar or the drinks to you, we can offer some history on tap! Bring your own beverage–why not try our recommended cocktail of the evening–and raise a glass to the past as we stay connected through our latest series, History Happy Hour.

$9 / $4 for members. A Zoom link and recipe will be in your confirmation email upon registration.
