Learning Forum: Women and War

March 1, 2020  2:00 pm - 3:00 pm



Learning Forums
 are thought-provoking presentations, followed by a discussion about the topic. Learning Forums in March are themed for Women in History Month. 

This week, Don Balyeat presents, "Women and War." 

Raised in a military family during World War II, he’ll share true stories from women involved in that war as well as the Civil War. You’ll also get to hear what women did on the home front.

Balyeat has traveled the entire United States and Canada as a paid tourist, allowing him to visit hundreds of historic sites.

Over the years, he has shared his stories with thousands of students. With a hands-on approach to teaching, he uses personal experience to connect with students and show them the value of historical education.

In addition to his teaching career, Balyeat has a passion for the Civil War. He is a Civil War historian, a Civil War Trust Color Bearer, and a member of the Honor Guard Legacy Giving Society.


Admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors, half-off for members. Call 605-394-6923 to reserve tickets.

You can sit anywhere you like in our theater! The seating map is below. Seats marked ADA indicate wheelchair accessibility. Blue seats indicate space for foldout chairs, but those with ADA requirements take first priority.
