Milton Public Library Virtual History Talk to take place July 12

On Tuesday, 7/12, at 7 p.m. via Zoom, historian Bob Begin will tell us a wrenching story about World War II in a “Virtual History Talk: The Loss of the Indianapolis.” She had delivered the Atomic Bomb to an island air base and was en route to the Phillippines when she was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. Over 900 men went into the water. They would spend four and one half days before being spotted by a recon plane. They would face numerous challenges and danger such as dehydration, exposure, hypothermia, dementia, and a complete breakdown of rank and discipline, and a most primal enemy…sharks!  When the rescue efforts were over, only 317 men were alive. This is a story of courage, loss of hope, and a cover-up. Please join us for a fascinating historical program with a very knowledgeable speaker. Sign up in advance is required to receive the Zoom link to attend.
