CRANFORD— The Friends of the Cranford Public Library invite you to a presentation on absolutely non-essential history on Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 7 p.m., in the Cranford Community Center, 220 Walnut Avenue.
What were Robert E. Lee’s last words? Why was Stonewall Jackson called Stonewall? Why is it bad luck to whistle on a Broadway stage? Why are the New York Giants called the Giants? What does the “hono” in Honolulu mean? Where did Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence? Why was the term “cowboy” considered a racial slur? Who were the six Marines who raised the flag at Iwo Jima? You will learn all this and more in a fast-paced, non-stop hour of non-essential (but very entertaining) history!
The program will be presented by Dr. James P. Kane. Dr. Kane, a former prep school headmaster, principal and superintendent of schools, who is currently an adjunct professor of education at William Paterson University. Admission to the program is free and all are welcome.
