Event Type: Library Event
Date: 3/22/2017
Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Time: 7:30 PM
 Dr. Rick Whaley and Herman Bender return to the Fond du Lac Public Library for “Big History of Overlooked America: First People to the Civil War,” a series of eight weekly presentations. The duo’s entertaining and thought-provoking presentations will involve great deal of show and tell involving artifacts from Bender’s personal collection. The programs are free; no registration required.

What do the historians mean by “overlooked?” It’s the inconvenient truth mostly buried in the past, not taught and deliberately covered up by myth. “That same overlooked past still presents problems and haunts society and our narrative of it to this day,” Bender said.
