Linderman Lecture Series: Ireland in Montana: The Fenian Brotherhood
6:30 PM
Frank Linderman Cabin at Robbers Roost
Description:
The EHAHC, in partnership with the Virginia City Preservation Alliance, is sponsoring their sixth Linderman Series history programs. The general theme of the 2019 Linderman Series talks will be the cultural and social life of 19th Century and early 20th Century Virginia City.
The Linderman presentations are usually held, as is this one, in the beautifully restored cabin of Frank Bird Linderman, on the grounds of the historic Robber’s Roost near Laurin, MT. This presentation will look at the history of what was the first, and largest, fraternal organization established in Alder Gulch. This Irish heritage group organized popular dances, founded the first library, and just may have played a role in the invasion of Canada.
Gary Forney is a retired college administrator and local historian. He has been a full-time resident of the Ennis area since 1999, and since then has authored four books, written numerous articles, and made many presentations on the early territorial period of Montana.
