Due to the pandemic, the Museums on the Green is currently closed to the public. However, we have created a dynamic new virtual series of talks with authors and historians (see what’s planned below), and new virtual exhibits featuring items from the archives. You can also read the latest issue of “Untold Tales of Falmouth” and catch up with previously published Tales here. Plus…there’s more to come!
The Museums on the Green is also seeking submissions for its “Covid-19 Archives”. Individuals, businesses and groups are invited to submit journals, essays, poems, photographs, songs, videos and other items that illustrate what life has been like in Falmouth during the 2020 pandemic. Later, we’ll share these stories and artifacts with you–and preserve them for generations to come in our new archives collection. MORE INFO

VIRTUAL TALK: “Bound by War” with Christopher Capozzola
January 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
How the United States and the Philippines Built America’s First Pacific Century
This is an epic story of two nations, two allies with shared history. It is also the story of a very uneven partnership. It is the story of the United States and the Philippines. And it is an important story to tell. Ever since US troops occupied the Philippines in 1898, generations of Filipinos have served in and alongside the US armed forces. As the US military expanded its presence in Asia–from the colonial-era Philippine Scouts to post-9/11 contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan–American forces have confronted their Pacific rivals from Philippine bases. This partnership created a gargantuan global military establishment; it also reshaped Philippine society and politics and brought thousands of Filipinos to America. Yet, while the nations have been crucial partners for over a century, it’s clear that “talk of brotherhood and shared service have hidden inequities and divergent ambitions.” PURCHASE THIS BOOK ONLINE FROM EIGHT COUSINS BOOKSTORE
