DAVENPORT LECTURE SERIES 12/7
THE DAVENPORT HOUSE MUSEUM’S 2015 LECTURE SERIES PRESENTS “ASHLEY’S SACK: HUMBLE OBJECT OF REVELATION” ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 7TH AT 6:30 PM.
Ashley’s Sack: Humble Object of Revelation
Date: Monday, December 7th at 6:30 p.m.
Speaker: Mr. Jeff Neale- Stableyards Interpretive Manager Middleton Place Plantation, Charleston, SC.
It is a simple seed sack from the mid-19th century, but the embroidered story on its surface transforms it into both a tome on slavery and a vehicle of remembrance. Known as “Ashley’s Sack” and displayed at the Middleton Place House Museum in Charleston, SC, the object has proven to be both a valuable and challenging piece of material culture. While the story that Ashley’s Sack tells is truly moving, it reminds us that an object’s interpretation is based not only on the inherent nature of the object, but on the displaying institution’s mission statement; the setting the object is being displayed in; the biases and concerns of the interpreters presenting the object and the responses of those viewing the object.

TICKETS ON SALE FOR CONFEDERATE NOG PARTY 12/19
TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE FOR FORT PULASKI’S CONFEDERATE NOG PARTY FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18TH AND 19TH.
Tickets Now on Sale for Fort Pulaski Candle Lantern Tours
Fort Pulaski will once again commemorate the Confederate Nog Party of 1861 on Friday, December 18, 2015 and Saturday, December 19, 2015. The long lived Savannah tradition will continue this year with night-time tours of the fort by candlelight and oil lamps.
The original party, held during Christmas 1861, gave the Confederate garrison at Fort Pulaski a respite from the tension of impending battle. The fort casemates, armed with cannon, were decorated with holiday garlands and as one soldier commented, tables groaned under the weight of fine delicacies sent down from the city. With song and good cheer, the men celebrated a light-hearted moment as the dark clouds of war gathered over Savannah.
Visitors will have the unique experience of a guided tour of the fort by candlelight. Hot cider and cookies, caroling, and night-time weapons firings will allow visitors to re-live the festive occasion.
WHEN: Friday, December 18, 2015 & Saturday, December 19, 2015

WEBB MILITARY MUSEUM TFN
THE WEBB MILITARY MUSEUM IS NOW OPEN IN DOWNTOWN SAVANNAH ON COLUMBIA SQUARE FROM 10 AM TO 5 PM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
Webb Military Museum Opens in Historic Downtown Savannah
The Webb Military Museum is now open in downtown Savannah and features military artifacts from Civil War to present. The personal collection, collected and curated by local Savannahian Gary Webb, features rare, one-of-a-kind military items, each with a unique story to tell. This self-guided museum is the only one of its kind in Savannah and will leave visitors feeling a little closer connection to the men and women who wore the uniforms, hats and metals.
Webb’s parental influence instilled a strong love of military history at an early age. Webb was raised in military life with a father who served as an Air Force officer for 33 years. However, it was his mother’s personal stories of growing up in London, England during World War II and her first-hand accounts of living through five years of deadly bombing and rocket attacks from the Germans that really instilled his love of his history and ultimately created the inspiration for the new museum.
The new museum is conveniently located at 411 E. York St. on Columbia Square in Savannah and is a must-see, unique experience for the community to learn about military history on a more-personal level. The Webb Military Museum also features a museum store and website where patrons can purchase collectables not found in the museum displays.
The museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday-Saturday. For more information, please call 912.663.0398.

CPR SEEKS HELP FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS
COASTAL PET RESCUE IS SEEKING DONATIONS FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOG TREATMENTS. It's been a long year for Coastal Pet Rescue, and with 99 canine intakes this year, it's only going to be longer. So far, Coastal Pet Rescue has treated five canines for heartworms, and two more are still awaiting their turn, but help is urgently needed to fund the medical care. Although heartworms are preventable thanks to monthly medications, many of the dogs Coastal Pet Rescue rescues have not been kept current - If ever at all - on the prevention, and thus need the expensive treatments. Treatments can run $600 to $1200 depending upon the severity of the infestation, and since Coastal Pet Rescue does not believe in passing on the excessive medical bills for adopters and instead charges only a flat $150 adoption fee, there's a lot left to cover. Donations may be made online at coastalpetrescue.org/donate or by mail to Coastal Pet Rescue, PO Box 30462, Savannah, GA 31410.
