History Happy Hour: Doomed Voyages Pt. 1

June 29, 2021 , 6:00pm 7:00pm

lexington disaster

Whether taking to the sea for a leisurely trip or to make a routine delivery—not all journeys end the way we plan. Learn about the shipwrecks that left a trail of devastation in their wake and are now immortalized at Green-Wood. We’ll encounter the storm-tossed John Minturn, whose sinking claimed the lives of 51 passengers and crewmembers; the fire aboard the Lexington that launched the career of famed printmakers Currier and Ives; and the paddle steamer Arctic, the Titanic of the nineteenth century. 

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.
