|Event Details:||Join us October 25 from 7-8:30 p.m. via Zoom for an interactive program Death (& Mystery) at the City Hotel - American Graffiti: A Mystery in History Guided Investigation.
If you found something old and mysterious in your attic, how would you begin to unravel its tale? Join staff as we study the puzzle of Civil War era graffiti on the attic walls of Gadsby’s Tavern Museum. The night begins with the telling of the tragic stories of two Civil War soldiers who died in the building. Against this backdrop, participants will go (virtually) behind-the-scenes to follow the evidence in search of the story behind the perplexing prose artfully inscribe upon the attic walls. Bring your curiosity and, if possible, a second device to aid in your search. Where will the evidence take us? It is a mystery we’ll solve together.
This program is sponsored by Gadsby’s Tavern Museum, part of the Office of Historic Alexandria.
Guests will receive an email with the Zoom meeting link, Meeting ID, and password by noon on October 25. Ticket sales will close at 4 p.m.
