Monday, November 29 - From The Headlines: The Future of Fort Monroe

Posted by: danny 11/29/2010 7:02 PM

Monday, November 29
From The Headlines: The Future of Fort Monroe
On September 15, 2011, The US Army will close up all operations at Fort Monroe, the Colonial-era fortress at the tip of the Virginia Peninsula. The decision to close was part of the 2005 Base Closure and Realignment Commission aimed at cutting military costs. So what happens when the Army transfers the property to Virginia? Will it become a National Park? Will it be split so parts of the Fort will be preserved, and other parts developed? Join us on today's HearSay to discuss all the possibilities and share your thoughts.

 

Guests:
Terrie Suit - Fort Monroe Authority Board of Trustees Chairwoman
Mark Perrault - President, Citizens for a Fort Monroe National Park
Steve Corneliussen - Vice-President, Citizens for a Fort Monroe National Park

Friday, November 19 - Alexander Hamilton/Bill Chrystal

Posted by: danny 11/19/2010 8:52 PM

Friday,  November 19
Alexander Hamilton
Today Cathy talks with Bill Chrystal, a historical interpreter who portrays Alexander Hamilton. He was inspired to portray Hamilton after serving as moderator of The Jefferson Hour for ten years. During that time he discovered that Hamilton was reviled by many of his peers which sparked his curiosity about this founding father. Chrystal has since delved into the life of Hamilton and found him to be a model of success whose lessons translate to modern times. Join us as we talk about many things, including Hamilton’s proclamation that no "Citizen of the United States should refrain from turkey on Thanksgiving Day.” Tune in!
