United States Marshals Museum To Host An Evening In The Past

FORT SMITH, Ark. (Nov. 10, 2017) – The United States Marshals Museum will host its third annual holiday event on Monday, December 11 at the Bonneville House in Fort Smith. This year, An Evening in the Past will feature both the younger and older Thomas Jeffersons from Colonial Williamsburg.

“Our first Evening event with George Washington and our second Evening event with Thomas Jefferson were both absolutely beyond my wildest imagination,” said Pat Hightower. “I really thought I had been transported by a time machine and was actually in their presence! Everyone should have this experience!”

Sam T. Sicard shared a similar sentiment, saying “The evening with Thomas Jefferson was one of the most memorable and enjoyable evenings in my life. The author of the Declaration of Independence and President who transformed America I have read about actually came to life that night. Not just his appearance and mannerisms, but his intellect and wisdom. It isn’t every day you get to have dinner with ‘The Pen of the Revolution.'”

“Last year, my family and I attended the evening with Thomas Jefferson,” said Dr. Cole Goodman. “What a wonderful evening.”

An Evening in the Past will take place from 6:30-9:00 p.m. at the Bonneville House, located at 318 North 7th Street in the Belle Grove Historic District. During the event, both the younger and older Thomas Jeffersons will visit with guests about how the third president’s views evolved over his career. Guests may also enjoy 18th century French inspired entertainment, food and cocktails. Tickets may be purchased for $75 through eventbrite.
