They drank when they woke up in the morning, as they ate and worked during the day, and when they socialized at night. But how people drank was as important as what they drank. From imported Madeira sipped at mahogany tables to local whisky out of redware jugs, this lecture explores the decorative arts that defined the early American drinkers.This annual lecture is presented by The National Society of The Colonial Dames of American in the State of Ohio and explores topics in Federal and/or Colonial period American decorative and fine arts. Lecture is from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. tea served immediately after.
