program traces the pivotal role that the battle over alcohol has played
in Oregon’s history. One of the most intense stories we relate in in ‘Wine and
Whiskey’ began in front of what today is McMenamins Grand Lodge in Forest
Grove, OR. Two cops kidnapped by bootleggers at gunpoint. Years later, one of
the cops was murdered by another bootlegger.
Come hear the rest of the story and more like it!
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.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
