Jack Lasseter kicks off this season of talks for the Tubac Presidio with the exciting and tragic story of the famous Pathfinder of the West, John C. Frémont, who mapped the West for American settlement. He and his wife Jesse, the daughter of the famous Manifest Destiny senator from Missouri Thomas Hart Benton, led a whirlwind life whose story leaves listeners breathless. There is a reason so many things are named for Frémont. Come and hear the amazing story of this famous American. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. $15 per lecture. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the community effort to “Save the Presidio.” Please call for reservations and future dates, 520-398-2252.
