    Name: Coffin Ships: Norwegian-Americans Journey to US
    Date: May 16, 2019
    Time: 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    Imagine yourself a child boarding a ship in Norway with your family, only to arrive weeks later in an American port city without your mother--who died on the ocean crossing and was buried at sea. What does this mean for your family? Will you ever find "home" again? Can America still be "the golden land of oppurtunity"? The Mount Horeb Area Historical Society is proud to host historian Pastor Glenn Borreson and the story of his ancestor family and their struggle to begin a new life in the United States. “Coffin Ships” is part of the Driftless Historium’s 2019 theme, “Immigrants of Wisconsin: Yesterday and Today," with financial supported generously provided by the Mount Horeb Community Foundation.
