Bourbon on the Battlefield

Join the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation at Vault & Cellar on Thursday, June 23rd, at 6:00PM, for a history speakers series right here in Middletown, Virginia! Order food or drinks and take part in a conversation style presentation with a historian, battlefield guide, author, or historical figure! Good food, history, preservation, and bourbon… Sounds like the perfect combination!

This month’s topic is titled, The Haversack Diet: Food in Civil War Armies

We often hear about the chaos of battle, the grand strategies behind a campaign, or the reasons men fought. For many of us, these thoughts and ideas are not parallel with our own experiences. However, one thing that we may connect with over the generations is a desire for good food and plenty of it! In this presentation, you’ll learn what the Civil War soldier ate, how he prepared his meals, and what receiving and ingesting those rations did for morale and his stamina.

Meet the speaker!

John Heckman is a digital historian who is best known to online audiences as The Tattooed Historian. John has an M.A. in History with a specialization in War and Society. He has worked alongside the U.S. Army, the National Park Service, and numerous universities and non-profits to bring history to the masses in new and dynamic ways. John will be an adjunct professor at Shenandoah University in the fall, and you can often find him conducting live-stream discussions on various social media platforms including Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch.

This monthly program is free, though food or drink orders are highly recommended and encouraged since the menu is delicious! Suggested arrival time of 5:30PM to allow for seating and food or drink orders prior to the start of the event. Donations will also gladly be accepted to benefit the Heater House Restoration Fund hosted by the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation. A percentage of the cost of each pour of bourbon from the evening’s activities will generously be donated by Vault & Cellar to benefit the Heater House restoration projects as well. Please drink responsibly.

Murder Mystery Dinner Theater

StageCoach Theatre Company Presents:

THE HAMILTON MURDERS

Written & Directed by Terry Smith
Produced by Jerri Wiseman

Solve the murder while you feast on a fantastic dinner!

July 11, 1804: Alexander Hamilton lies dying on the ground. Aaron Burr stands nearby, a smoking pistol in his hand. Meanwhile, Hamilton’s wife sits at home with a room full of federalists awaiting his return. We have learned that history is written by those who want us to believe what they want us to believe, not necessarily the truth. The Hamilton Murders suggests the possibility that history got it wrong – again. We explore six possible conspiracies, based upon historical facts, that surrounded Alexander Hamilton at the time of his death. We will present these theories in true entertainment form and allow you to decide which one you believe is right. In so doing, you will answer the question “Who paid Aaron Burr to shoot Alexander Hamilton?”

Doors & Bar open at 4:30PM
Show starts at 5:30PM
Dinner Break at 6PM
Show resumes at 6:45PM
