Culture & Cocktails: The Ransom of Hagerstown with Steve Bockmiller

July 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Enjoy a drink and have a think! At Culture & Cocktails, a lecture program at the Miller House Museum, we tackle a historical topic with the help of a little liquid fortitude.
In the summer of 1864, the city of Hagerstown was one of several locations held for ransom by Confederate troops. Author and historian Steve Bockmiller will recount this dangerous time in local history alongside a pop-up exhibit of our artifacts from the ransom.

The featured drink will be: the Sangria Flora! This exotic take on a summer classic is sure to fortify you in case of sudden Confederate invasion.

Your ticket price will include your first drink, and refills will be available for a small fee. This event is for adults ages 21 and older, please! For more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
