Harpers Ferry NHP has its share of historical monuments. Three of them are controversial, one of them very much so. Taken together, they tell a story of how John Broun has been both embraced and rejected over time. They also tell a story of racial politics in the United States of America.

This illustrated program delves into the stories behind the monuments and some of the people who have desired to put them up and take them down.

This will be stationary talk.

*After submitting your reservation you will receive a confirmation email with details.

REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 5 P.M. ON FRIDAY, JUNE 24, 2022.
