Steele County Historical Society Presents the Newest Edition of History Uncorked: “Eliza Brown and the Handyman”

April 2017 – The Steele County Historical Society (SCHS) announces the newest edition of History Uncorked – a fun and innovative way to learn about history while enjoying a glass of wine, beer or soda.  This edition, “Eliza Brown and the Handyman,” will be held Thursday, June 15, 7PM at the Steele County History Center.

This case of Eliza Brown is a true story in Steele County history set in 1862.  Eliza Brown became suspicious of the handyman’s intentions towards her daughter.  She took matters into her own hands, and unleashed an astonishing attack, which led to the charge of Attempted Murder.

Join us as attorneys Ben Cass and James Cole argue the case using the evidence from 1862.  The audience, aka jury will deliberate and decide the case before learning the true fate of the accused. The Honorable Doug Ruth will preside.

History Uncorked is sponsored by Smith, Tollefson, Rahrick and Cass Law.  Tickets are $10 for members; $15 for non-members and includes one beverage of your choice.  Additional wine, beer and soda are available for purchase.
