Friends of Massie Present
EVENING AT MASSIE HISTORY SERIES:
EXPORING LIFE IN VICTORIAN SAVANNAH
Proudly Sponsored by the Savannah Downtown Neighborhood Association
DATE: Tuesday, June 7, 2016, 7 p.m.
WHAT: Massie Heritage Center welcomes Early American historian Christopher E. Hendricks for an evening of history exploring life in Victorian Savannah. Learn how this exciting age reshaped Savannah’s landscape, society and architecture. With the dawn of the nineteenth century, the city of Savannah found itself on the cusp of great change as it developed from a provincial colonial capital to a thriving and nationally important port city. Accompanying this shift was an equally exciting revolution in culture as Americans joined their European cousins in revolting against the rationality of the eighteenth-century in favor of emotional responses to experience as they expressed themselves through literature, music, and the visual arts.
