From witches and angels to headless horsemen and mermaids, the early American republic was filled with the mystical and the paranormal. Just in time for Halloween, Dr. Craig Friend will explore some supernatural encounters and speculate on what they tell us about the era and its inhabitants. Refreshments will be served. Seating is limited, and advanced payment is required. Craig Thompson Friend is Professor of History and Director of the Public History Program at North Carolina State University. He co-edited the book Death and the American South, and researches and writes about masculinity, the family and Southern death culture. He is currently writing a biography of Lunsford Lane.
