First Friday: Dueling: An Affair of Honor

Friday, October 4, 2019 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

One of New Bern’s most memorable historic moments is the duel between John Stanly and Richard Dobbs Spaight. But why did these elite politicians resort to solving their interpersonal problems with dueling pistols? Join Historic Interpreter Shane Mason to explore the causes and effects of honor, dueling, and codified violence from its European roots to not-so distant American history.
