On June 7, 2016, the Massie Heritage Center will host Early American historian Christopher E. Hendricks (Armstrong University) for an evening of history exploring life in Victorian Savannah. Learn how this exciting age reshaped Savannah’s landscape, society and architecture. With the dawn of the nineteenth century, the city of Savannah found itself on the cusp of great change as it developed from a provincial colonial capital to a thriving and nationally important port city. Accompanying this shift was an equally exciting revolution in culture as Americans joined their European cousins in revolting against the rationality of the eighteenth-century in favor of emotional responses to experience as they expressed themselves through literature, music, and the visual arts.
This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will also be served. It will take place at the Massie Heritage Center at 207 East Gordon Street in Savannah, Ga. For additional information, contact Colleen Philbrick at (912) 604-1950 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
