Tall Ship: Pride of Baltimore II @ CBMM

CBMM_PrideofBaltimoreVisitThe tall ship Pride of Baltimore II will be at CBMM on Friday, August 11, and remain dockside along CBMM’s campus through August 13, with deck tours offered from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.

In 1988, Pride of Baltimore II was commissioned as a sailing memorial to her immediate predecessor, the original Pride of Baltimore, which sank in 1986 due to a white squall off Puerto Rico. Both ships were built in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor as reproductions of 1812-era topsail schooners, or Baltimore Clippers, which helped America win the War of 1812 and finally secure its freedom.

Chautauqua Series: Voices of the Great War, with W.E.B. Du Bois

On the evenings of July 10-12, the annual Chautauqua Summer Series brings three live performances to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s waterfront. This year’s Maryland Humanities’ series features Voices of the Great War, with all living history performances taking place from 7:00 -9:00 p.m. along Fogg’s Cove and the Miles River. All performances are free and open to the public.

The 2017 Chautauqua Summer Series at CBMM is generously sponsored by Karen and Langley Shook, and in part by the Talbot County Arts Council, with funds from the Maryland State Arts Council.

“The world must be made safe for democracy. Its peace must be planted upon the tested foundations of political liberty.” With these words, President Woodrow Wilson asked the United States Congress to declare war on Germany. For nearly three years, war raged in Europe after the 1914 assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria sparked a diplomatic crisis. Despite attempts to remain neutral, because of various acts of aggression by Germany, including the death of 128 Americans in the German attack on the British passenger liner RMS Lusitania, the United States officially entered World War I in April 1917.

For its 23rd season, Chautauqua is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into the Great War as three World War I-era figures come to life.

On Monday, July 10, Chautauqua veteran Doug Mishler, an independent scholar who has taught at the University of Nevada and Western Washington University, will portray General John Pershing, commander of the American Expeditionary Force on the Western Front in World War I, who was one of America’s most accomplished generals.

On Tuesday, July 11, Bill Grimmette, a living history interpreter, storyteller, actor, and motivational speaker, will portray W.E.B. Du Bois, a sociologist and scholar, and one of the most important African-American activists of the early twentieth century.

On Wednesday, July 12, the St. Michaels series wraps up with Judd Bankert bringing to life President Woodrow Wilson. Bankert has been portraying President Wilson as part of the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Birthplace’s living-history program since 2000.

A Chautauqua performance is a historical dramatization featuring individuals who are part scholar and part actor. Each performance is broken into three acts, where the performer represents a historical figure in the first person, then invites audience questions; and in the final act, steps out of character to answer questions that the historical figure could not have been able to answer.

“Chautauqua” was the name for the Chautauqua Lake area in upstate New York, where the movement began in 1874 as a Methodist summer retreat. A wide range of religious lectures and educational programs attracted a huge following. As it evolved, the Chautauqua movement presented the latest in thinking in politics, economics, literature, science, and religion. Maryland Humanities launched the modern Chautauqua program in Maryland in 1995.

MarylandHumanities_Logo_Horz_JPGThe Chautauqua Summer Series at CBMM invites guests to bring carry-on food and beverages along with their own chairs and blankets for seating. All performances are held on the lawn of Fogg’s Landing, near CBMM’s Steamboat Building, with convenient entry adjacent to parking. In the event of rain, performances will be held in the Van Lennep Auditorium, with space limited. No registration is required.
