A Cold War event is being recounted by a witness.
Twenty-eight years ago, Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev was nearly overthrown by Soviet officials.
The attempt caused unrest in the Soviet Union and played a role in its disbandment, according to a release from the Cold War Museum.
Col. Bruce Slawter, who served as a military attaché at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, will share what he experienced at an event the Cold War Museum and Old Bust Head Brewing Company are hosting.
His presentation starts at 2 p.m. on July 14 at Old Bust Head Brewing Company, 7134 Farm Station Road in Warrenton.
Tickets can be purchased on eventbrite for $35. Attendees may also buy available tickets at the door for $45.
