Lecture: William Geroux

March 23, 2017 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT

The Mathews Men

Presented by William Geroux

Cost: $5 for Adult and Child tickets. Free for Members.

Lecture begins at 7:00PM – Doors open at 6:15 PM

Mathews County, Virginia, is a remote outpost on the Chesapeake Bay — but it sent an unusually large concentration of sea captains to fight in World War II. The Mathews Men tells that heroic story through the experiences of one extraordinary family whose seven sons (and their neighbors), all U.S. merchant mariners, suddenly found themselves squarely in the cross-hairs of the U-boats bearing down on the coastal United States in 1942.
