Fort Frederik Museum to Show Transfer Day Film

March 11, 2006 – In recognition of Transfer Day the Fort Frederik Museum will feature an expanded display that will include an art exhibit, a documentary film and a panel discussion on the Transfer of the Danish West Indies to the United States. A panel discussion will take place on Saturday, March 18, at 10 a.m., according to a press release from the Department of Planning and Natural Resources.
