Book & Bottle At SCHS

Book & Bottle: History of Jews on Long Island’s East End, with Karl Grossman, will be Thursday, November 7, at 6 PM at the Suffolk County Historical Society in Riverhead. Grossman’s presentation will zero in on the Jewish settlement in Sag Harbor. Members attend for free; non-members are $5. The registration includes wine and cheese and admission to the current exhibits.

The museum is offering free admission for veterans during Veterans Day week, November 13 to 16, to Long Island in Conflict, a newly-interpreted permanent exhibit. This exhibit offers examples of uniforms, weapons, medals, and other objects from the permanent collection, honoring Long Island’s contribution to the country’s defense. From the earliest days of settlement, Long Islanders have played an active role in the nation’s military history. On the home front, residents raised money, food, and supplies, and provided the links to home and family so crucial to a soldier’s performance. The Civil War and the two world wars saw the largest numbers of Long Islanders in uniform. During the 20th Century, Long Island was the site of major military training grounds, encampments, and airfields. Many of the nation’s military aircraft were built on Long Island.
