CATCH SOME HISTORY HERE
FLAGLER MUSEUM’S WHITEHALL LECTURE SERIES – PRESIDENTS OF THE GILDED AGE
Presidents to be discussed include Grant, McKinley, Garfield, Cleveland and Hayes. Here is an opportunity to listen to the lectures, watch the presentations and ask the lecturer questions. Authors of books about these men will be present and a book signing with the author will follow each lecture.
It can also be seen online. For first time users of the Flagler Museum's on-line room, you need to install a small, safe plug-in.

Within that box, click on the "Run" button. Please be sure to configure your firewall to allow the Talking Communities software access to your computer and please disable your screen saver. No charge for online attendance.

You just might hear some similarities to our times right now. The more things change the more they remain the same?
