“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” Calvin Coolidge (1927).
As we look forward to another year, all of us at the Michael J. Colligan History Project thank you, our audiences, friends, and supporters and wish you a very happy holiday season. We look forward to welcoming you all again in the New Year!
Following this fall’s exploration of “Ohio and the Civil War,” we look forward to bringing you our spring 2015 program of events, entitled “Public Enemies: Hamilton’s ‘Little Chicago Era & its Consequences.” This promises to be a popular topic, with local historical interest mixed in with an overview of the dark exploits of John Dillinger and other notorious outlaws and gangsters. Stay posted for our forthcoming schedule later this week!
Meanwhile, please enjoy the following pictures from our recent event, courtesy of our man with the camera, videographer Craig Rouse.
