Presentations will be held on the Chateau veranda on Saturdays and Sundays at 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. (MT). History Alive programs are free and open to the public. A.T. Packard, the editor of the Bad Lands Cow Boy, will appear the weekend of Sept. 1-2. Portrayed by Donald Ehli, Packard will discuss his life as the editor of the newspaper from 1884-86. The Madame de Mores (Medora) will appear at the Chateau Sept. 8. Portrayed by Karen Nelson, this program will center on Madame de Mores’ return to Medora in 1903 after spending summers at the Chateau from 1883 to 1886. Visitors will meet Madame in a brief retrospective on her time in western Dakota as well as her life following her return to France. The free History Alive programs explore the lives and times of decades gone by, combining theater arts with history. The 20-minute monologues are based on original letters, diaries, and other documents, many from the archives of the State Historical Society of North Dakota.
