Ingersoll Museum Announces 1997 Schedule

The Robert Green Ingersoll Birthplace Museum in Dresden, New York, will open Memorial Day weekend (Saturday, May 24) and close on Sunday, November 1. Hours are Friday through Sunday from 12 noon to 5 p.m. The museum celebrates the life and times of Robert Green Ingersoll, born in the house in 1833. Interpretive exhibits explore 19th century freethought, the Civil War, and the culture of America's Gilded Age. Special displays focus on local history of New York's beautiful Finger Lakes region.

A special attraction for 1997 will be an expanded exhibit of Civil War memorabilia. Ingersoll was known throughout his life as "Colonel Ingersoll," his wartime rank, and first burst into public consciousness through his tireless propagandizing on behalf of the Union cause.

As in 1996, an aggressive program of outdoor advertising has been funded by the James Hervey Johnson Charitable Educational Trust of San Diego, California.
