Discover Charlotte’s New Liberty Walk – A Free Program At The Duke Mansion

Filed under: Uncategorized — seniorlivingguide @ 8:45 am

Charlotte – How was Charlotte involved in the Revolutionary War? Why was the city called a “hornet’s nest of rebellion?”

A new self-guided history tour in center city Charlotte, the Liberty Walk, uses a multimedia app to answer those questions and bring Charlotte’s early history to life.

Learn more about the tour and Charlotte’s Revolutionary War past during a free program at The Duke Mansion. “Discover Charlotte’s New Liberty Walk” takes place on Sunday, September 16, 3 pm, at The Duke Mansion, 400 Hermitage Road in Charlotte. Reservations are required. Call 704/714-4445 or email kellis@tlwf.org to reserve.

Speakers include Scott Syfert, cofounder of the May 20th Society, and Dan Nance, historical artist and creator of the Charlotte Liberty Walk mobile app. Nance painted original artwork for the app that portrays battles and historic scenes at each stop. Syfert and Nance will describe what Charlotte was like during its early formative years and how the Walk and app help readers imagine historical events right where they occurred in Charlotte.

“Discover Charlotte’s New Liberty Walk” is part of the Explore History! series sponsored by The Duke Mansion and Levine Museum of the New South. For more information, visit www.dukemansion.org or www.museumofthenewsouth.org.
