SACKETS HARBOR – Author and lecturer Raya Lee will present “War of 1812: Fury, Frenzy and Honor” at 6:30 p.m. Friday at the Great Lakes Seaway Trail Discovery Center, 401 W. Main St.
Lee’s presentation is a combination of American history lesson and Great Lakes Seaway Trail travelogue appropriate for all ages with documented images and music.
The program is free for all, with co-sponsoring by the Seaway Trail Foundation, New York Council for the Humanities Speakers in the Humanities Program, and the NEA Blue Star Museum initiative.
“As the United States and Canada prepare to observe the bicentennial of the War of 1812, I am pleased to share the dramatic stories of the struggle that included ‘Old Ironsides,’ the defeat of Tecumseh, and the heroism of Dolly Madison,” Lee said.
She is the author of “Pan-American Exposition, a Bird’s-Eye View of Sights and Sounds” and “Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra – the First 75 Years,” published by the Buffalo Heritage Unlimited Press.
Lee, who often lectures on War of 1812 history with examples of appropriate music for the time period, has served as a librarian with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, and Medaille College in Buffalo.
