How Did They Die? Deaths of Famous People: Live Zoom Presentation - Not for the Faint of Heart
Presented by Greg Caggiano
Lots of people get famous for what they do in life, but what about what comes after? Join historian Greg Caggiano for a presentation that examines (with plenty of humor!) the circumstances surrounding certain historical figures' historical deaths, ranging from Henry VIII to Napoleon, from Marie Curie to Christopher Columbus and several others. In examining the details of a death, more than a little life emerges! NOTE: in dissecting some historical details, the presentation will get anatomically specific—faint of heart historians be warned! Be prepared for some dark humor too.
Q&A session will follow the lecture.
