What started as a noble exercise in defining the rights of man devolved into a murderous series of riots, slaughters, and bloodlettings.

    The French Revolution is the first of the world’s successful revolts to go horribly wrong. What started as a noble exercise in defining the rights of man devolved into a murderous series of riots, slaughters, and bloodlettings. What started as a simple bankruptcy proceeding lapsed into a lawyer-controlled mess where it was cheaper to buy a newspaper than it was to buy a loaf of bread. It would awake the dark heart in politicians the world over who would end up leading their states down the same path. Please register for this class if you are interested in participating via Zoom only.  You must have access to a computer/tablet/phone with audio and video capability.

    King of the Britons and central figure of the Arthurian legends comes to life in Geoffrey’s of Monmouth’s Historia Regum Britanniae. Long considered to be nothing but a story, Arthur’s name appears in several lists for the 7th to the 10th Century… lists which only include known historical figures. Why would respected historians include a fictional character in their historical works… unless, of course, he wasn’t as fictional as we think he is. Class is given via Zoom.  You must have a computer/tablet/phone with audio and video capability.

    On January 22nd, 1879 the British army suffered one of the worse defeats of any modern rifle-armed military force during the colonial period… only in this case, it was defeated by native troops armed primarily with short spears. An even worse defeat than Custer three years before. The London papers referred to the event by saying “The Zulus are a match of us in generalship, and more than a match for us in cunning.” Except for rifles and artillery, the British and the Zulu military were remarkably similar… except the British were slaughtered. Class is given via Zoom.  You must have a computer/tablet/phone with audio and video capability.
