    Sundays at the Museum

    William Katz is an American historian, and author of 40 books on little known aspects of American history.
    Katz will discuss his book, “The Lincoln Brigade” which reveals the story of the 2,800 Americans who sailed to Spain in 1936 to help defend its democratic government against an overthrow by Hitler, Mussolini and General Franco and try to stop World War II.
