September 25: “On the Trail of the USS Monitor: From the Adirondacks to Hampton Roads”
Speaker: Morris Glenn
“The USS Monitor was the first ironclad warship commissioned by the United States Navy during the Civil War. She is most famous for her participation in the Battle of Hampton Roads, Virginia, on March 9, 1862, the first-ever battle fought between two ironclads.
An early turning point in the war, this clash changed naval warfare. The iron for the Monitor was mined and smelted near Crown Point and its journey from there to Hampton Roads is the subject of our first fall lecture.” (Lyceum Series – Whallonsburg Grange Hall)
What are the Whallonsburg Grange Lyceums?
“Lyceums flourished in the United States from the mid-19th century and were important in the development of adult education. Lecturers, musicians, singers and readers traveled the “lyceum circuit,” going from town to town to entertain, speak, or debate.
The current Lyceum Series at the Grange continues this tradition with lectures and programs of interest to the community.” (Whallonsburg Grange Hall)
