**Correction: in the Anne Bonny story, in regards to her death, we say 1881, but we mean 1781, as you’d probably guess from our framing it around the American Revolution – sorry!**

This whole mess was my idea. I'm really in to music and I love history. I am the Manager of Youth and Family Programs at the Frazier History Museum in Louisville, KY. I've curated exhibits about Lewis and Clark, created countless hours of history-focused programming, and shared some great times thinking, learning, talking, and laughing about the past and future with some great people - both adults and children.
