"Into the Lion's Den: William Hooper's Harrowing Mission to Crown-Occupied Wilmington" by Suzanne Adair External Event Page
Raleigh, North Carolina
The Joel Lane Museum House presents a lecture on "Into the Lion's Den: William Hooper's Harrowing Mission to Crown-Occupied Wilmington" by Suzanne Adair. On 25 January 1781, a British flotilla out of Charleston, South Carolina, reached the Cape Fear River. Three days later, redcoats marched north and occupied the port town of Wilmington, North Carolina. The Regiment caught the state's patriot government by surprise, enabling the capture of some patriot leaders. William Hooper, signer of the Declaration of Independence, escaped at an agonizing cost. Suzanne Adair, author of an award-winning mystery series set during the American Revolution in North Carolina, will discuss Hooper's voluntary return to Wilmington half a year later while the British still controlled the town.

MS Marine sciences UCSC, PhD Zoology University Western Australia. Since 1997, he has been conducting surveys in Monterey Bay to understand what determines the distribution, abundance, and species composition of krill, tiny shrimp-like invertebrates that are a crucial link in the Bay's food web. Krill are zooplankton invertebrates that travel in huge swarms in the oceans all over the world. These swarms sometimes reaching densities they can turn the surface of the ocean pinkish-red.

Mirror of the Martyrs Exhibit External Event Page
Montezuma, Kansas
Venue: Stauth Museum
The internationally-touring Mirror of the Martyrs traveling exhibit will be on display at the Stauth Memorial Museum of Montezuma, Kansas. The exhibit will be in the area for a nine-week showing at the Stauth Memorial Museum. This exhibit is sponsored by Martyrs Mirror Trust, Kauffman Museum of North Newton, Kansas and Mennonite Historical Library of Goshen, Indiana. This exhibit was displayed at the Stauth Museum in 1996 and drew record crowds. ////// The Mirror of the Martyrs is an exhibit inspired by the discovery in 1975 of thirty copper plates used in the printing of the 1685 edition of the Martyrs Mirror edited by Thieleman van Braght. This second edition included illustrations by the Mennonite artist Jan Luyken. Seven of the plates, thought to have been lost in World War II, were brought to the United States by Amos Hoover, Denver, Pennsylvania. In 1989 the remaining 23 plates were obtained by Robert Kreider, Kauffman Museum, Bethel College, North Newton, Kansas, and John Oyer, Mennonite Historical Library, Goshen College, Goshen, Indiana, and placed in the possession of the Martyrs Mirror Trust. In 2011 another plate was discovered and made available to the Trust. In 1989 the construction of an exhibit based on the new acquisition of plates was begun. The exhibit was designed as a traveling exhibit, modular in design with self-contained lighting. It features eight copper plates with additional images produced from the 1685 edition, four editions of the Martyrs Mirror (1660, 1685, 1748 and 1780) and various other artifacts that illustrate the times in which the events of the Martyrs Mirror took place. Added to the exhibit, are stories of contemporary martyrs and prisoners of conscience. The exhibit opened at the Kauffman Museum in 1990 after which it began a journey that has taken it across North America. The exhibit has been on display in 68 locations in at least twenty two states and five Canadian provinces. The exhibit is not just for Mennonites, it is a testimony to principle and conviction, ideals a
