History Happy Hour

March 18 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

History Happy Hour returns on Thursday, March 18th at 6:30 pm!

We kick our 2021 schedule off with Dr. Ashley Rattner and her presentation, “Benjamin Lundy, East Tennessee, and the Early Abolitionist Press.” Lundy was an abolitionist and an editor who spent his early career in Ohio and Missouri. He founded the abolitionist publication, The Genius of Universal Emancipation, and relocated to east Tennessee in the 1820s before moving on to Maryland. He continued his publication and influenced other abolitionist publishers including William Lloyd Garrison.

Our first presentation will be online-only, and will be available via zoom and Facebook live. The Zoom login information is available on Facebook and the Heritage Alliance website. You can connect directly with the program via zoom or watch the live stream on the Chester Inn’s Facebook page. This program is free and open to the public!

This project is funded under an agreement with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, Tennessee Historical Commission. For more information on the Chester Inn Museum, History Happy Hour, or the Heritage Alliance please call our office at 423.753.9580 or the Chester Inn Museum at 423.753.4580.  You can also contact the organization via email at info@heritageall.org.  Additional information about the Heritage Alliance and its mission can be found online at http://www.heritageall.org/.
