Battle of the Bulge the focus of the next lecture at the Wright Museum

On Tuesday, August 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro will explore the Battle of the Bulge as part of its Lecture Series, sponsored by Ron Goodgame and Donna Canney.

This exploration will take place through the documentary, “The Battle of the Bulge: World War II’s Deadliest Battle,” which was made for the PBS series, “The American Experience.” Narrated by David McCullough, the documentary delves into the German offensive from December 1944 to January 1945 designed to split the Allied forces line.

At the Battle of the Bulge, American forces bore the brunt of the attack and incurred their highest casualties of any operation during the war.

“Apart from D-Day, the Battle of the Bulge was one of the most important events of WWII,” said Michael Culver, executive director of the Wright Museum. “This documentary is a wonderful way to remind or introduce Americans to this profoundly significant moment in history.”

The Wright Museum’s Lecture Series takes place every Tuesday through the end of the museum’s season, which concludes Oct. 31.

Admission is $3 for members and $8 for non-members. Seating is limited, and reservations can be made by calling 603-569-1212.

Wright Museum is open daily through Oct. 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
