Korean War Remembrance Ceremony

Korean War Remembrance Ceremony

On Tuesday, June 25, at 2:00 p.m., the Veterans History Museum of the Carolinas will host a Korean War Remembrance Ceremony in Brevard to com-memorate June 25, 1950, the 74th anniversary of the start of the Korean War. The ceremony is intended as a tribute to America’s military veterans who fought and died to preserve the existence of the Republic of [South] Korea. It will also be a tribute to the resilient and industrious people of South Korea, who suffered a brutal attack but persevered and prevailed, going on to build one of the world’s most vibrant economies and democratic societies. The Korean War was one of the most destructive conflicts in history. During its three-year duration (1950-1953), every major Korean city was devastated, and an estimated 2½-3 million people perished. It was the first military action of the Cold War, pitting the Communist forces of North Korea, China, and the Soviet Union against the United States and 20 other member-countries of the United Nations. Nearly 37,000 Americans lost their lives defending South Korea, and more than one million South Koreans (civilian and military) died as a result of intense battles and many months of attrition warfare. The museum’s Korean War Remembrance Ceremony will be held at Ingram Auditorium on the campus of Brevard College. The ceremony will feature: A presentation by Tom Comshaw, U.S. Air Force veteran of the Korean War, currently of Campobello, South Carolina. Tom’s combat service kept indispensable F-86 jet fighters armed and flying over... Read More

Blacksmithing & Brews

Blacksmithing & Brews

Discover the basics of forging hot steel in our unforgettable blacksmithing workshop! You and up to five other guests will take turns at the anvil, working one-on-one with our blacksmith as he guides you through heating and hammering a piece of rough steel into a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted knife you can take home. You’ll learn the skills of knife making with Mo, Earthshine’s blacksmith and lead program instructor. Mo has twenty years of experience in outdoor education and living history, and has taught students of all ages. While he directs and demonstrates the techniques you’ll need to complete your knife, he’ll also share the legends, lore, history, and science behind the craft. Once you’ve formed the rough shape of your knife at the forge, you’ll head up to Earthshine’s Main Lodge to finish and refine your blade. We’ll provide tools, instruction, and, of course, a refreshing beverage. We offer a selection of local beers and ciders, as well as craft sodas and sparkling water. While perfecting your masterpiece, you can sip and soak in our stunning view overlooking Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge Mountains. This is a beginner’s course, so no experience is needed and all equipment is provided. Ages 13+ are welcome, but you must be at least 21 to be served alcohol. Each person participating will take home their own wrought iron knife that can be used as a letter opener or simple spreading utensil.
