Every second Wednesday of the month, the Museum of the Confederacy and the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park are partnering to bring the Civil War Sesquicentennial to Appomattox. Each month, a knowledgable speaker will lead a discussion on a topic or event's 150th anniversary. The talks will take place upstairs at Baine's Books and Coffee.
Join Appomattox Site Director Linda Lipscomb for a program on Victorian Tea. Attendees will learn about the types of tea, the difference between afternoon tea and high tea, and how tea was introduced to England and the United States. Scones, cookies, and breads will be provided with the tea.
Reservations are required and the program is limited to 30 attendees.
Cost: $5.00 for Museum members, $10.00 for non-members.
Attendees are asked to bring their own tea cup and saucer.
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.
