Presented by: Author Ken Bilderback
This program traces the pivotal role that the battle over alcohol has played in Oregon's history, including right here in Forest Grove. One of the most intense stories related in in this presentation began in front of what today is McMenamins Grand Lodge. Two cops were kidnapped by bootleggers at gunpoint and then years later, one of the cops was murdered by another bootlegger. Come hear the rest of the story and more like it! About the Speaker:Ken and Kris Bilderback have authored four history books that have won prizes for history and literature at book festivals in New York, Los Angeles, Hollywood, and San Francisco. Their latest, Law and Order at the End of the Oregon Trail, explores the role of race, gender, and anti-government sentiment in the evolution of Oregon jurisprudence.
