The Untold Story of the Cuban Missle Crisis with Michael Tougias

THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS presented by Author Michael J. Tougias. In this multimedia presentation based on his recently published book, Above & Beyond: John F Kennedy and America's Most Dangerous Cold War Spy Mission,  New York Times bestselling author Michael J. Tougias first chronicles the thirteen harrowing days of the Cuban Missile Crisis and then outlines the steps President Kennedy made to reach a decision on a course of action. Special emphasis is given to the heroes of the crisis: the U-2 pilots who flew unarmed over Cuba to secure the photographic proof that the Soviets were installing nuclear missiles on the island. These pilots helped President Kennedy achieve a difficult objective: have the nuclear missiles removed from Cuba without triggering Armageddon.

Edith Cavell: A Common Woman with an Uncommon Life

In honor of women's history month, Terri Arthur will present "Edith Cavell: A Common Woman with an Uncommon Life."   This pictorial presentation will be based on her popular award-winning historical novel Fatal Decision: Edith Cavell WWI Nurse.  Based on fact, Arthur’s richly written historical novel tells the powerfully moving story of the legendary Edith Cavell, a British nurse who started the first nurses’ training school in Belgium. When World War I broke out she used her nursing as a cover to become a key link in the dangerous and clandestine world of the Belgian underground rescuing wounded Allied soldiers.  She changed the history of America and Europe with her role in this war.  Ms. Arthur lives in Falmouth, MA. and has worked as a nurse at the Martha’s Vineyard, Falmouth, Cape Cod, and Jordan Hospitals.

Author David Bushy: The World Looked Away

The Vietnam War ended on April 30, 1975.   Millions of Vietnamese on both sides of the conflict were killed.  Nearly 60,000 Americans were among those who died. You have all seen or heard about the war in the recent Ken Burns series: "The Vietnam War."  But what happened after the country of South Vietnam no longer ceased to exist?  What happened to the former South Vietnamese military officers and men, to their families and to their country?   The newly-released book "The World Looked Away - Vietnam After the War: Quoc Pham’s Story,” strives to tell that story.   The book is a memoir of a man and his wife who struggled to survive nearly five years in the Reeducation Camps, the gulag of the New Economic Zone, and even assignment as a human mine detector on the Cambodian Border.  The story culminates with Quoc’s harrowing escape into a storm with 55 people aboard a small boat into the East (South China) Sea.

French Explorer Champlain and the Great Chatham Misadventure of 1606

French Explorer Champlain and the Great Chatham Misadventure of 1606.  While explorer Samuel de Champlain may be most widely known as the “Father of New France” (Canada), he left the earliest detailed descriptions and sketches of Cape Cod's land forms, native peoples and flora and fauna during his exploration from Acadia to the Cape. Join National Seashore Park Historian Bill Burke for an illustrated journey back four centuries to take a closer look at his maps and travel journal. Do they correspond with the archeological record, and were they accurate and true? His remarkable maps of Nauset Marsh and Stage Harbor are stunning in their detail, but do they leave us with more questions than answers? Why did his journey end in open conflict with the Monomoyick people?  This event is part of History Weekend, sponsored by Historic Chatham.  Check out www.historic-chatham.org to discover all the events and activities scheduled throughout Chatham June 14-17.

Author Wendy Hinman

Sea Trials: Around the World with Duct Tape and Bailing Wire by author Wendy Hinman.  Wendy is an adventurer, speaker and the award-winning author of two books, Tightwads on the Loose and Sea Trials. Sea Trials, her second book, tells the exciting story of the harrowing journey of the Wilcox family. A shipwreck might end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for them. To triumph, they must rebuild their boat on a remote Pacific island. Damage sustained on the reef and a lack of resources haunt them the rest of the way around the world as they face daunting obstacles, including wild weather, pirates, gun boats, mines and thieves, plus pesky bureaucrats and cockroaches as stubborn as the family. Without a working engine and no way to communicate with the outside world, they struggle to reach home before their broken rig comes crashing down and they run out of food in a trial that tests them to their limits.  Wendy Hinman's books and presentations are filled with humor and hard-won lessons that amuse and inspire. Don't miss the chance to hear her present while she is in town. For more information, visit her website www.wendyhinman.com.

Rum Running on Cape Cod with Don Wilding

Rum Running on Cape Cod - During the era of Prohibition (1920-1933), rum running was big business on Cape Cod. Farmers and fishermen of the Cape took to the seas, heading offshore to "Rum Row" to bring the criminal yet coveted alcohol to the mainland under cover of darkness, while the possibility of being caught by the Coast Guard was always present. Busy harbors and remote estuaries, many of which are now popular tourist destinations, were all game for bringing the contraband ashore, while local law enforcement officials often turned a blind eye. Join Don for this comprehensive look at how "the Noble Experiment" turned into a profitable and potentially dangerous undertaking for many of the Cape's residents.   Since the start of the millennium, Don Wilding has been telling stories of Cape Cod Outer Beach history through lectures, video, and the written word. An award-winning writer and editor for Massachusetts newspapers for 30 years, Don pens the popular “Shore Lore” history column for the Cape Codder newspaper of Orleans, and is the author of two books, “Henry Beston’s Cape Cod: How ‘The Outermost House’ Inspired a National Seashore,” for the Henry Beston Society, and "A Brief History of Eastham: On the Outer Beach of Cape Cod," from The History Press. Don has also been an instructor of Cape Cod history courses for the Open University of Wellfleet and Nauset Community Education.

On the Trail of Bonnie and Clyde with Chris Daley

This lecture which is part travelogue and part history, will chronicle the story of Bonnie and Clyde separating the reality from the myth! For years the public has been fascinated with the story of this Dust bowl Romeo and Juliet. However much of what we know is mainly from the 1967 movie "Bonnie and Clyde" and more recently a highly fictionalized made for TV movie shown on A&E and the History Channel. Much myth, conjecture and outright lies have grown up about the two Texas bandits, but when one delves into the true story of the two lovers, a much more interesting and human story emerges; much better than Hollywood was able to depict. This one hour lecture will tell that story through the use of period photographs and movies plus modern photographs and video shot by Chris. He traveled through the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri on the "Trail of Bonnie and Clyde," photographing and making video of the sites of their homes, murders, robberies, shootouts and hideouts. Along the way he met characters like L.J. "Boots" Hinton, the son of lawman Ted Hinton - a member of the posse that took down Bonnie and Clyde in 1934 and the mayor of dusty Kemp Texas who related a fascinating story of Bonnie's incarceration at the Kemp Calaboose. Chris drove over 4,000 miles in search of the real Bonnie and Clyde. Please join us as he takes you on the "Trail of Bonnie and Clyde."

LOCATION: Forgeron Hall (Front Half)

This lecture which is part travelogue and part history, will chronicle the story of Bonnie and Clyde separating the reality from the myth! For years the public has been fascinated with the story of this Dust bowl Romeo and Juliet. However much of what we know is mainly from the 1967 movie "Bonnie and Clyde" and more recently a highly fictionalized made for TV movie shown on A&E and the History Channel. Much myth, conjecture and outright lies have grown up about the two Texas bandits, but when one delves into the true story of the two lovers, a much more interesting and human story emerges; much better than Hollywood was able to depict. This one hour lecture will tell that story through the use of period photographs and movies plus modern photographs and video shot by Chris. He traveled through the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri on the "Trail of Bonnie and Clyde," photographing and making video of the sites of their homes, murders, robberies, shootouts and hideouts. Along the way he met characters like L.J. "Boots" Hinton, the son of lawman Ted Hinton - a member of the posse that took down Bonnie and Clyde in 1934 and the mayor of dusty Kemp Texas who related a fascinating story of Bonnie's incarceration at the Kemp Calaboose. Chris drove over 4,000 miles in search of the real Bonnie and Clyde. Please join us as he takes you on the "Trail of Bonnie and Clyde."
