"Nights at the Sea Services Museum"

 

Who:  Military Sea Services Museum

 

What:  "Nights at the Sea Services Museum" - Have you ever wondered how history might have been altered had just one battle gone the other way?  For most of us armchair historians, studying the military history of the United States is usually a solitary pursuit.  Now, however, using the resources of the Museum Library and the internet, our organization will host informal discussion groups on topics that should stimulate analysis through reading and research by participants and perhaps lead to a better understanding of historical events.  Propounding  your own theory on why things worked out the way they did or debating how this or that leader made the right or wrong decision should make good grist for the discussion mill stone.

 

Where:  The setting will be the Museum Library where coffee and light refreshments will be served free of charge.  Address: 1402 Roseland Avenue, Sebring, FL 33870 (one mile east of Sebring High School).
