History Speaks! The Alaska Purchase & Treaty of Cession
March 30, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us on Seward’s Day to celebrate the sesquicentennial anniversary of the purchase of Alaska from Russia with Kodiak’s own Dr. Gary Stevens, former history professor at Kodiak College.
Gary will explore and discuss the impact of the purchase, the initial military control of Alaska which really treated us as a colony once again and the eventual expansion into a territory and a state. This event will help us kick off a six-month celebration of the purchase of Alaska, from Seward’s Day to Alaska Day in October.
