This Week @ MHS

By Dan Hinchen

August is leaving us and September steps in. As fall approaches we will see increased activity on our events calendar, but we want to ease into so this week we keep things light.

On Wednesday, 2 September, we have a Brown Bag lunch talk taking place at noon. Pack a lunch and join us to hear Christopher Capozzola of MIT share “Brothers of the Pacific: America’s Forgotten Filipino Armies and the Making of the Pacific Century.” Capozzola’s talk and research explores the relationship between military service, immigration policy, and civil rights in modern American history. This talk is free and open to the public. 

Friday, 4 September, is your last chance to come in and see our current exhibition before it closes. “God Save the People! From the Stamp Act to Bunker Hill” is open to the public free of charge 10:00AM-4:00PM. Come take a look before it goes away for good! To see what is coming up next, be sure to check the Exhibitions page on our website. 

Please note that the MHS is CLOSED Saturday, 5 September, through Monday, 7 September, in observance of Labor Day. Also, the LIBRARY remains CLOSED through Friday, 11 September. Normal hours resume on Saturday, 12 September.
