Virtual Programs This Spring

The museum will host its first virtual lecture on April 7 at 6:30 p.m. with Dowagiac native Ron Kirkwood doing his program, “Too Much For Human Endurance: The Spangler Farm at Gettysburg.” Kirkwood, a 1973 DUHS graduate, is a longtime newspaper writer and editor who authored the well-regarded book about Spangler Farm during the Battle of Gettysburg.

This program will be the first of a two-part look at Spangler farm during the battle with the hope that Kirkwood will be able to do the second part in-person in August.

Museum Director Steve Arseneau will do the program “A Few of My Favorite Things” virtually on May 5. That program will be a virtual tour of Arseneau’s favorite artifacts in the museum with extra backstory.

To view and interact with the program, follow the link to the Zoom chat below. Virtual attendees will be able to watch the program and type in questions in the ‘chat,’ which will be moderated by the museum. Please note there is a limit to the number of participants, so limit the number of devices watching the program to one per household if possible.
