Mankato Events Murder Mystery-murder At Sea
In early August in 1914 the SS Libertania set sail from New York, bound for Southampton. On 14 August the captain requested that all crew and passengers meet him in the Grand Ballroom. In solemn tones, Captain Bayard announced that he had just been informed the German military forces had invaded Russia and Belgium, and that the British and French governments had declared war on Germany.
There was stunned silence from the assembled passengers and crew. Then, just as voices were getting louder, the lights went out. There were screams, and a shot. By the time the lights came on again, many people had left the ballroom and the Captain's body was slumped on the floor. He had been shot dead.

But by whom? Become a guest on the SS Libertania and see if you can solve the murder.
Ages 12-18
Registration Required!
