Engage the Enemy More Closely III

Location: Main Library
Date: Thursday, September 25, 2014 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

The Battles of Coronel and the Falklands were the first two major naval engagements of the First World War.  The defeat of Admiral Craddock's British squadron in November 1914 at the Battle of Coronel by Admiral von Spee's Asiatic Squadron was Britain's first defeat at sea in over a century.  The British got revenge one month later at the Battle of the Falklands that ended the German threat to British maritime trade in the Atlantic and Pacific.  The events are thrilling and a little known campaign from the early days of modern navel warfare.

In the late 19th century most Alabama towns, no matter how small, usually had an inn or hotel for weary travelers.  These early buildings were usually simple wooden structures with inviting verandas.  For the more affluent traveler there were also fancy resorts and spas that offered an escape from the heat and miasmas that blanketed Alabama in the summer.  This program provides a visual tour of many of the early accommodations from the Colonial Inn at Fairhope to the Mentone Inn in the northeast corner of the state.
