The ghost of the war in Vietnam haunts us still today.  How did we get into that mess? And how do we wrestle with its implications today?  This class will delve into the war itself, those who were impacted across the many spectrums, and how we remember the conflict through film, literature and song.

Mike Bell loves American history! With a master’s degree in both history and teaching, and an undergrad degree in political science, he has enjoyed a varied career in teaching and historical interpretation. Mike appeared on a History Channel special about PT 109, and for over 20 years, he has portrayed many historical figures, including Butch Cassidy and Sam Houston.
