Grab yourself a quarantini and join us for a virtual Historical Happy Hour!  

The late 19th and early 20th centuries were decades of pivotal change on so many fronts; the American Civil War, the death of Prince Albert, World War One, and the Spanish Flu Pandemic all had massive influence.

Join us for a virtual Zoom lecture discussing the historical and cultural events that changed the way we handle the dead and social attitudes around our deceased bodies in the United States.
