 * A word of explanation why it's important to call in your reservations and interest, is because so much of these activities have limited space, and , or are on line, we need to strictly monitor them for health and safey security issues and to plan accordingly in line with current Covid Prevention guidelines.

January 21/ Thursday / Columbus presentation by Richard DiGiacomo / 7pm

Thursday Jan 21 at 7 PM. Zoom Presentation by Richard DiGiacomo, regarding his research and book, The Critics of Columbus, The Character Assassination of a Great Explorer. This is a rescheduling of his October talk. The focus regarding Columbus will remain the same and explore some of the original source documents that Richard researched in developing his findings. While political correctness monument attacks may have started with Columbus, it "aint" ending there! A failure to reasonably assess history and teaching moments has resulted in an insane list of attacks on monuments, including George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and even John Muir. Richard's book is on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble.  Call the IAHF to register for the program.
