Bermuda and the Mid-Atlantic States
The Museum of the Albemarle will host History for Lunch on July 2, 2014 at 12:15 p.m. Bring your lunch and enjoy a lecture by a different speaker each month. The museum provides the beverage. You may come earlier to eat your lunch before the lecture begins.
Thinking about a summer vacation? Take a visual vacation to Bermuda. Bermuda is probably best known today for its pink sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters. It's also only about 650 miles due east of where we live today. No wonder, then, that there are many historic connections between this island and the eastern seaboard of North America. This PowerPoint talk by Martha Williams, museum volunteer and archeologist, will examine the long relationship between this tropical paradise and our region of the Mid-Atlantic states.
