October 3, 1990The Berlin Wall has fallen and Germany is officially reunited!Construction of the Berlin Wall began in August 1961 and by the 1980s, this system of walls and electrified fences - and 55,000 landmines - extended 28 miles through Berlin and 75 miles around West Berlin, separating it from the rest of East Germany.

Speaker Series – Becoming FDR

November 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$10 – $20

Join us at the American Heritage Museum on November 18th for a compelling talk about President Franklin Roosevelt by writer and historian Jonathan Darman. Standard museum admission $20 adults / $18 Seniors & Veterans / $10 children 12 yrs and younger.

The Book:
One summer night in 1921, the 39 year-old Franklin D. Roosevelt was stricken with infection from poliovirus. The illness ravaged his body, upended his life, remade his marriage and transformed his character. Unable to walk but determined to return to politics, he was forced to develop abilities he’d never had before: empathetic leadership, strategic thinking and a genius for sustaining resilience and inspiring hope. These gifts would make him the man who would go on to lead his country through the Depression and World War II.

 

The Author:
Jonathan Darman is a journalist and presidential historian whose books have examined the lives of Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan. Previously he was senior political correspondent for Newsweek where he profiled leader figures in American politics including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama, Mitt Romney and John Kerry.
