Arrrrgh!

Andrew Jackson recruited the help of pirates during the Battle of New Orleans-- weeks after a treaty actually ending the War of 1812 had been signed.

"Diana: A Celebration" exhibit gallery open

Date: September, 15th 2012 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

This 7,500 sq. ft. exhibition explores the life and humanitarian work of one of the 20th century’s most remarkable women. Diana’s life is explored through nine galleries containing 150 objects, ranging from her royal wedding gown and 28 designer dresses to family jewels, heirlooms, personal mementoes, paintings, rare home movies and photos.

 

“Diana: A Celebration” comes to the Frazier directly from the Althorp Estate in England, the Spencer Family’s 500-year-old ancestral home, where it is on display every summer. A portion of the proceeds generated to the Althorp Estate from the exhibition, produced by Arts & Exhibitions International, will benefit charitable causes including the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.  Click here to read more.
