History and Hors d’oeuvres
Sunday November 20th 2016 • 4 – 6 p.m.
Richard Blumental, Author and historian will share his insights after many years of research and study of the journals and logs of Captain George Vancouver and other pre-19th century voyages to discover the Pacific Ocean. For those who may have forgotten their Washington State history, in 1792 Captain Vancouver and his crew explored and named Puget Sound as the United States were being established on the other side of the continent. The accounts of his logs and the logs of his crewmen were the first recorded observations of our now familiar waters. Hear about the grounding of the Chatham in Port Susan, the naming of Port Gardner, Saratoga Passage and Mount Baker by Mr. Blumenthal who has long studied and compared these accounts. Join us for this fascinating look at the transition from Puget Sound’s pre-history to our contemporary world.Sunday, September 18th
