New GVL Chautauqua Living History Series: Mary Musgrove – NEGA History Center
July 11 @ 7:00 pm
Join us for our popular living history series this summer featuring Founders of Georgia. On Tuesday, July 11th at 7:00 PM, you’ll meet Mary Musgrove portrayed by living history interpreter Nicole Castoreno.
Mary Musgrove was the official translator of the Georgia colony for General James Oglethorpe. Her Yamacraw Creek and English heritage and her role as a prominent tradeswoman in the Savannah area made her an ideal translator and cultural mediator for General Oglethorpe.
During this program, you’ll learn about Mary Musgrove’s experiences as a woman of two cultures, the challenges and successes she faced at her trading posts, and how essential she was to the peaceful negotiations between the British and the Yamacraw Creek Native Americans.
This event is free for Members and $10 for non-Members. Student tickets are available for $5.
