Event description
Forged in Iron and Bone - Unveiling Faces of the Enslaved

About this event

The guests of honor at this event have been dead for 200 years. For the first time, see forensic facial reconstructions of two enslaved African Americans from Catoctin Furnace.  The unveiling will take place at 7 pm and will include a short presentation about the 200-year-old mystery brought to life.  The evening will include heavy hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, and music. All proceeds will go directly to the completion of the Museum of the Ironworker in historic Catoctin Furnace.  

A Message from Catoctin Furnace Historical Society, Inc.:

Dear members and friends of The Catoctin Furnace Historical Society,

We are hoping you will be able to join us Thursday, June 24, 2021, from 6:30 -9:30 pm at The Delaplaine Arts Center for the rescheduled program. Your admission fee will be applied to the new event. Dr. Douglas Owsley, Cheyney McKnight, Elayne Bond Hyman, Elizabeth Comer, Christopher Gardiner, and David Key have all confirmed their attendance on June 24.

If you cannot join us on Thursday, June 24, you may donate your admission to someone of your choice. Just let us know the new name. Or, you can allow us to provide the ticket to someone who could not afford a ticket. Your ticket price will then be considered a donation to the historical society and you will receive a receipt for the cost.

If you wish to receive a refund, please contact Elizabeth Comer at 443-463-6437 or info@catoctinfurnace.org.

Thank you for your support and understanding. It is very much appreciated.

Sincerely,

Elizabeth A. Comer
