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: “How Ike Led” with Susan Eisenhower
December 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
HOW IKE LED
The Principles Behind Eisenhower’s Biggest Decisions
By Susan Eisenhower, a DC policy strategist, security expert and Ike’s granddaughter
Few people have made decisions as momentous as Eisenhower. Even fewer have had so many diverse decisions to make. From D-Day to Little Rock, from the Korean War to the Cold War crises, from the Red Scare to the Missile Gap controversies, Ike was able to give America eight years of peace and prosperity by relying on a core set of principles. He was a man of strong character, judgment and personal discipline. His heritage and upbringing informed every decision he made–and he avoided making himself the center of things. He sought national unity by pursuing the “Middle Way,” a course that tried to make winners on both sides of any issue. Ike was not an operational leader. He was a strategic leader who relied on a rigorous pursuit of the facts for decision-making. He could envision the whole, especially in the context of the long game. He could also see causes and consequences. And, after making a decision, he assumed accountability for it, recognizing that personal responsibility is the bedrock of sound principles. Simply put, Ike was a steadying force in peace and war. Find out more about one of America’s most remarkable public figures from someone with a very personal connection: his granddaughter.
