This talk is part of the Orwell and Shoreham Libraries Keynote Speakers Series: Lake Champlain is on of the most historic bodies of water in the United States.  Created through a series of geological events, it has remained within its present banks for 10,000 years.  Native Americans first occupied the shores, leaving their marks before the lake’s “discovery” over 400 years ago.  Since 1607, the lake has been a site of military conflict, commerce and recreation.  Vermont historian Don Wickman will feature tales of lake heritage coupled with illustrations.  Spotlight on Vermont Keynote Speakers Series co-sponsored by both libraries and the Vermont Humanities Council Speakers Bureau.
