Episode Info:

Wherein we celebrate and explore the revival of the Chautauqua movement in Garrett County, and the state of Maryland. Hear and experience up close and personal the eclectic mixture of recreation, music, culture, education, and spiritual revival that characterized these summer gatherings back in the late 1800s up through the 1920s. Our own Mountain Lake Park Chautauqua was instrumental in the development of these events, and you can hear actual period music, historic re-enactments, lectures, etc. at this fun-for-the-whole-family Festival, July 5-7, at Mountain Lake Park. Find out why Teddy Roosevelt claimed that Chautauqua was "The Most American Thing in America," and hear in this episode clips of speakers and period music from Stephen Foster to John Sousa to Giuseppe Verdi.
