Legacy: MN in the Vietnam War by Arn Kind – Park Rapids
February 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm
History will come alive at your local library! Arn Kind is back with another historical experience, “Minnesota in the Vietnam War”. The Vietnam War, the longest in American history, cost the nation 56,000 lives, 300,000 wounded, 1,200 missing in action, and $141 billion. The program will describe the increasing commitment of each of five American presidents, the rising antiwar protests at home and eventual U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam, and the lingering tragic effects of a war that had never been declared. This multimedia presentation will use power-point, video, music, drama, role-playing and living history experiences to give us an understanding of this turbulent time and make history come alive.
This free Legacy Program is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
