Jackie Curtiss is back with another selection of history through her unique style of story-telling. If you have attended a class with Jackie before, you know you are in for a treat. If you have not . . . . what’s stopping you?
Although General Scott is no longer a household name, he was one of our youngest generals ever in the War of 1812, led the Trail of Tears, took the US Army to victory in the Mexican-American War, and was still head of the army at the start of the Civil War. And along the way, he ran for president. Join village historian Jackie Curtiss as she uses the biography of “Old Fuss and Feathers” as the backbone of the story of America in the early 19thcentury.
Instructor: Jackie Curtiss is a Village resident who LOVES history and has taught a class for us each spring the last several years. She retired from teaching junior college and high school history in Texas several years ago, but just can’t quite get out of the classroom.
