History Speaks: Swords, Sabers, and Dussacks, Oh My! (Norfolk)

September 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Meet Gallery Host and Medieval Martial Arts expert Christine Gamache for a fascinating look at how the weaponry of early modern Europe evolved into the lethal weaponry and techniques used during the American Revolution and beyond.

About the Myers House:
The Myers House is significant as the most intact, best documented, and surviving, known Jewish residence in the United States of any period before 1800. Moses Myers, an early American entrepreneur, built the house to accommodate his growing family. Initially situated in a very rural setting, the federal-style house set a new standard of sophistication for the rapidly expanding City of Norfolk. It was passed down through five generations of the Myers family who lived in the house from 1795–1931.

Free for Museum members, $10 for non-members.
Registration is required. Space is limited.
