Big History Series Continues At FDL Public Library
The Fond du Lac Public Library’s Big History of Overlooked America series continues tonight. Community Information Coordinator Terri Fleming says Marian University Professor Rick Whaley and local historian Herman Bender are offering a look at stories from the Civil War that isn’t generally known. She says it is the fourth year the pair has offered the popular talks. She says the reason you didn’t hear the stories is because there were people who didn’t want others to hear them. She says they were covered up or replaced with myths. Bender will also display artifacts from his historical collection. The talks are each Wednesday night at 6 p.m. at the Library through March 22nd. There is no cost to attend.
