An Evening with Admiral Horatio Nelson

  • Wednesday, July 13, 2016
  • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
  • MacArthur Memorial Visitor Center Theater, 198 Bank St., Norfolk VA 23510

Spend an evening with Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson at this interactive program co-hosted with the Regency Society of Virginia. Nelson’s brilliant naval victory at the battle of Trafalgar in 1805 enshrined him in the pantheon of British heroes, even as his affair with Emma Hamilton scandalized the nation. Living history presenter, Bryan Austin, will treat guests to an audience with one of naval history's most complex commanders, followed by a question and answer session. There is no charge to attend and the event is open to the public.
