The Sesquicentennial Brown Bag Lunch Series in Richmond
These free talks are held monthly at the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond. Bring your lunch and join in on the discussion.
Throughout the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the Museum of the Confederacy-Richmond will be hosting a monthly series of talks devoted to a topic or event's 150th anniversary. These talks, normally scheduled for the third Friday of the month, are free for members and Richmond area residents, and are included with Museum admission for all others.
The Museum recently opened a 147-year-old bottle in its collections—only to find a secret coded message that had never been delivered. Learn what cryptology and the Siege of Vicksburg have to do with one another, in this exploration of a truly unique research project. Join Museum Curator Cathy Wright for this lunchtime discussion.
