February Meeting of the Monticello Area Historical Society


February 21, 2019

WWI Re-enactor Chris Seitz

The Monticello Area Historical Society (MAHS) will meet at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, February 28, 2019, in the Zwingli UCC Lounge, 416 E. Lake Ave., Monticello.

Following a short business meeting, WWI re-enactor Chris Seitz of New Glarus will give a presentation on his unique hobby. Per Chris, "There are many ways to learn about history, such as through books, documentaries, and schooling. But there is something unique about having a hands-on, physical interaction with history that allows a person to have a glimpse into the past as if walking through a door into a different time!" That is one of the many reasons Chris is a WWI re-enactor. During his presentation he will discuss the various aspects of re-enacting as a doughboy; the hours of research, finding and acquiring a wide array of historical artifacts used at that time. Re-enacting can play an important role in bringing history to the public.

This is a free presentation and will start about 7:15 p.m. Come join us, the public is welcome to attend both activities.
