From Beetown to Atlanta: The Tale of a Civil War Drum – Lyceum
February 28: Jeff Schave Presents “From Beetown to Atlanta: The Tale of a Civil War Drum”
In August of 1862, Burt Sumner and James Hayden traveled from Beetown to the county seat of Lancaster to enlist and answer President Lincoln’s “Call to Arms.” Serving in Company “C” of the Wisconsin 25th Regiment as musicians, they would march through Tennessee, Mississippi, and Georgia. As a silent witness to these events, Burt Sumner’s snare drum has not had the opportunity to share its stories and experiences. This presentation will attempt to give voice to this rare and unique artifact, and thus share with pride “A Drums Tale.” $4 Per Lecture or $20 for all 7 Lyceum Lectures. Register Now!
