FLORIDA — Educator and historian Carolyn Ivanoff will guide you through a virtual tour of Arlington National Cemetery on Thursday, Nov. 2, as part of a fund raiser to benefit the Seward/Mapes Homestead Restoration in Florida.

Ivanoff's previous lectures, "Civil War Medicine" and "Ghosts of Gettysburg Battlefield," earned wide acclaim from appreciative audiences.

She was named “Civil War Trust Preservationist Teacher” of the year in 2003. In 2010, 2011 and 2013, her educational programs received awards of Merit from the Connecticut League of History Organizations.

Follow the history of Arlington from its humble origins during the Civil War as a burial place of necessity, to its current celebrity as the most prestigious cemetery in the United States.

Our nation’s history can be read on the stones of Arlington.

Once the great antebellum plantation of the Custis and Lee families, Arlington’s green slopes shelter more than 275,000 United States veterans from every war.

Come and join us to explore this hallowed place and hear the stories of sacrifice and honor that Arlington can tell.

The Seward/Mapes Homestead presents a rare opportunity in historic preservation to focus on the lives and accomplishments of two men deeply engaged in the American Civil War on different levels – one as Secretary of State in the Lincoln Administration and the other as a Union soldier who survived many horrific battles before being severely wounded.

Essential information• The program runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Florida Senior Center, 3 Cohen Circle.

• Admission: $10 adults; $15 couples; veterans and students free.

• Light refreshments will be served. Seating is limited.

• For more information contact: events@sewardhomestead.org or call 845-294-3839.
