Description

Join us for the Rising Sun Inn Speaker Series on October 27, 2018, at 2:00 p.m., at the historic Rising Sun Inn located at 1090 Generals Highway, Crownsville, featuring Dr. Robert Selig and Of Skull, Severed Heads and Skeletons: What to do with a Dead Hessian, Brit, Frenchman or American, as the Case May Be?

Learn what modern historians won’t tell you! Battlefield clean-up is an inevitable task following nearly any military engagement - corpses to dispose of. Who does that? Can we tell who buried whom? When? How many hours, days, or months later? Where? Individually or in mass graves? In natural crevices? Lakes? Naked or dressed? Officers and other ranks together or separate? How long do they remain in the ground? Are they ever found? Who would dig them up and why? Can we identify them? What happens with the skeletons?

Admission is $12 for Friends of the Rising Sun Inn members and $15 for non-members. Become a member when you register for this event and save 20% on the Individual or Family Annual Membership rate.
