About the Lecture

The day before Thanksgiving in 1917, the worst mass killing of police officers in American history prior to 9/11 occurred in downtown Milwaukee from a bomb planted by an international terrorist group. This talk will show how forgotten events that shaped American history started in Milwaukee in buildings you walk past every day.
