Good afternoon, friends! Did you miss yesterday’s webinar with the Hoover Presidential Library and Museum? It’s now available online! Click here to view it.

Join Elizabeth Dinschel, Archivist and Education Specialist from the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum for her session: The Bonus March: How to Teach History with a Civics Lesson

In 1932, World War I veterans boarded freight trains from Portland, Oregon, to Washington, DC, to lobby Congress for early payment of a bonus that was scheduled to be paid in 1945. On July 28th, 1932, the police, and later the military, put down a riot made up of nearly 60,000 Bonus Marchers. This webinar will show how to blend primary sources, historic narrative, and civics into an inquiry arc using the Bonus March. 

Don’t forget to sign up for our next webinar with the Truman Library to discuss Truman and the Steel Crisis!
