Grand Review of the Armies Sesquicentennial Concert Saturday, May 30, 2015 - 2:00pm

Civil War Concert: 150th Anniversary of the Grand Review of the Armies

150 years ago, on April 9, 1865, Robert E. Lee surrendered The Army of Northern Virginia to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox, Virginia. Then on April 18, 1865, Joseph E. Johnston surrendered The Army of Tennessee to William T. Sherman, at Bennett Place, North Carolina. With a few exceptions of continuing fighting, mostly west of the Mississippi, the Civil War was over. To commemorate the ending of the war, both The Army of The Potomac and The Army of The Tennessee, paraded down Pennsylvania in Washington City for two days: May 23 and May 24, 1865.

Please join us Saturday, as Irish Blessing returns to the Bowie Branch Library to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the ending of the Civil War. Irish Blessing will perform music of the Civil War and exhibit Irish Step Dancing.

Blitzkrieg, Dunkirk, and the Fall of France Saturday, June 6, 2015 - 2:00pm

75 years ago, on May 10, 1940, Germany carried out a massive invasion of The Netherlands,Belgium, and France. Supported by armor and air power, the Wehrmacht quickly overran or pushed back the Allied Forces. Winston Churchill realized that the army had to be evacuated or the British would not be able to defend the British Islands. From May 27 until June 4, the Royal Navy, along with other British civilian craft, successfully evacuated over 338,000 British, French, and Belgian troops under enemy fire. Then, on June 22, France surrendered to Germany in the same railway car that Germany had been forced to sign the Armistice on November 11, 1918. Please join us as Christian and Anthony Garrett discuss how Germany was able to achieve such overwhelming success so quickly on the battlefields of 1940, when only 25 years earlier, World War I had bogged down into 5 years of trench warfare.
