Franklin Fever Series Part 1: Film
This winter the Mattatuck Museum will host a three-part series that will dive deep into historic mysteries with the tale of Sir John Franklin. In 1845 Franklin led two of the Royal Navy’s best ships and a crew of 128 men into the Arctic seeking Northwestern passage. The expedition’s two ships disappeared, and the men were never heard from again. The first of the three-part Franklin series will be a viewing of John Walker’s Passage (108 min.).
