Colonial Career Fair: A Living History Event @ Newport Historial Society
Feb 24 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Colonial Career Fair: A Living History Event @ Newport Historial Society | Newport | Rhode Island | United States

In the mid-18th century, Newport was the fifth wealthiest city in colonial America. What jobs were people doing that helped the city become so successful?

On Saturday, February 24, 2018, from 10am-1pm, join the Newport Historical Society to learn how people made their living. During this colonial career fair, costumed interpreters will represent different occupations that would have been present in this seaport. Jobs range from tradespeople like a printer, milliner and leather worker to merchants such as a toy seller and store owner, along with food service jobs such as a baker, brewer, coffeehouse owner and tavern keeper.

Join the action and try a traditional 18th century craft: candle making. For $5 make a beeswax candle to take home while learning about the candle making trade in colonial Newport.

This program takes place at the Colony House on Washington Square. Admission is free, donations are welcome.

To Win or Lose All: William S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War @ Naval War College Museum
Feb 24 @ 10:00 am – 4:30 pm
To Win or Lose All: William S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War @ Naval War College Museum | Newport | Rhode Island | United States

The Naval War College Museum presents a new exhibit, “To Win or Lose All: Williams S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War.” The exhibit occupies the museum’s gallery on the second floor.
To Win or Lose All explores the Navy’s role in securing victory for the Allies during the First World War. Under Admiral Sims’s leadership, American warships escorted convoys to France, laid mines in the North Sea, and hunted German submarines. On land, naval aviators flew scouting and bombing missions while Marines fought in the trenches east of Paris. While the sweeping naval campaigns of 1942-1945 may attract more scholarly attention, the foundation for their success was established twenty-five years earlier when the Navy operated for the first time as part of a coalition. Indeed, many officers who rose to prominence in the Second World War – Ernest J. King, Chester W. Nimitz, and Harold R. Stark, to name a few – gained valuable experience with combined operations during the first global conflict of the twentieth century. Curator Rob Doane hopes, “that this exhibit will encourage visitors to understand Admiral Sims and the sailors who served under him as real people who worked under difficult circumstances to meet the enormous challenges of wartime service.”
