WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Although the “War Between the States” was fought far from Wisconsin’s borders, the Civil War had a big impact here at home.
Former history teacher Dr. Mark Hoernke will discuss Civil War history in Wisconsin as the guest speaker at the November session of Let’s Learn Together, a free public speaker series. Hoernke, high school principal in Poynette, will speak at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017, at Hilltop Grand Village, 1400 24th St. S., Wisconsin Rapids. (Enter by Home Depot.) Refreshments will be served, and there will be time for questions.
There is no charge to attend, and the public is welcome. Let’s Learn Together is a monthly speaker series that explores topics of interest in the community.
Most Let’s Learn Together sessions are recorded and air on Wisconsin Rapids Community Media at 9 a.m. Mondays and 11 a.m. Wednesdays on Solarus Channel 3 and Charter Channel 985. They also are available on demand on YouTube.
