John Reeves’ book, A Fire in the Wilderness: The First Battle Between Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee, depicts the initial bloody showdown between the two most celebrated military leaders of the Civil War. If Grant’s spring campaign ended in failure, it’s extremely likely that President Lincoln wouldn’t have been reelected. Lincoln believed his successor would have sought peace immediately, which would have meant an end to the Union. Reeves will discuss the performance of the two generals and why this battle marked the beginning of the end for the Confederate States and changed the course of American history.

Author Chris Brown will talk about his book "The Washington Canoe Club". The Club has been a landmark on the Georgetown waterfront of the nation’s capital for over a century. Its iconic Victorian boathouse, now listed in the National Register of Historic Places, has survived floods and fires as well as changing land uses along the Potomac shoreline. The canoe club is best known for its prowess and as a pioneer in national and international paddling competition, from introducing canoeing as an Olympic sport in 1924 to bringing women fully into competitive paddling. But the story is also one of the coming of age of outdoor recreation and social clubs in America’s cities, where, post-Civil War, people came to enjoy new leisure time and “physical culture” in a wide variety of outdoor activities.

Philip Guston (1913–1980) was one of America's great modern painters. Guston was a WPA muralist, a leading figurative artist of the 1930’s and 40’s, a University professor, an artist in residence, a Prix de Rome recipient, a recognized abstract expressionist and in his late career returned to a new representational style. Guston uniquely bridged the personal and the political, the abstract and the figurative, and the humorous and the tragic, hilarity and horror, in canvases applying painterly surfaces and graphic vibrancy. An international retrospective of the artist’s work "Philip Guston Now" has been put on hold due to the subjects represented and the potential for misinterpretation. Working at the forefront of 20th century history and very much aware of his own times, Philip Guston created prescient works that continue to haunt our uneasiness and unresolved American history.

Thomas Germano will present a remote visual lecture from Great Neck Library on the art, life and times of Philip Guston.

Join Montgomery History's Collections Manager Elizabeth Lay for a special talk reprised from the Smithsonian Associates series. America experienced a wave of European migrants during the early 20th century. Some were escaping war and oppression while others sought opportunities in a growing democracy. These immigrants included giants of architecture and design: Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius, Laszlo Moholy Nagy, Eliel and Loja Saarinen, and Joseph and Anni Albers. They arrived in the U.S. by securing teaching positions at universities throughout the country, where they inspired the next generation of designers and architects such as Charles and Ray Eames, Florence Knoll, Jack Lenore Larson, and I.M. Pei. Lay examines how the contributions of their work and teachings changed the face of American design—including noteworthy local buildings that you will recognize!?

The Current State of U.S. Russian Relations with author and journalist Gregory Feifer. Nearly every 24-hour news cycle contains a news item related to Russia. Gregory will offer insights that may help us in understanding the rationale behind the current chaos in the world order.
A former NPR Moscow correspondent who reported from Russia for almost a decade, Gregory Feifer witnessed the coup d’état attempt against Mikhail Gorbachev in 1991. During the country‘s resurgence under Vladimir Putin, he observed the effects of its vast new oil wealth on an increasingly nationalistic society, as well as, Moscow‘s rekindling of a new Cold War-style opposition to the West. As a senior correspondent at Radio Free Europe in Prague, Feifer investigated Russian influence in Europe, including the Kremlin‘s use of Gazprom, the Russian gas monopoly, as an instrument of foreign policy. This event is brought to you by the Council of Former Federal Executives & Associates (COFFE).

Welcome to a hybrid world. Even as we begin to get out more, Zoom is here to stay. Some people love it, others find it frustrating to have people so close and yet so far away. Carol Greenwald will discuss why our brains find Zooming more difficult than meeting in person, and suggest ways to make the experience better for everyone. She will show us some of the apps you can use for Zoom to make meetings more fun. Carol Schiro Greenwald, Ph.D. is a networking, marketing and management strategist, coach and trainer. Sponsored by Northwest Neighbors Village. Registration required. https://nwnv.helpfulvillage.com/events/2486

This past year has afforded us extra time to look at all the things we've accumulated through the years. How do we feel about our possessions as we move forward? How can we part with those sentimental collections? Whether we anticipate a future move or we simply want our living spaces to work better for us, most of us struggle with the process of "editing" our space. This panel of presenters will help us tackle the tough decisions about which things to keep and which to part with. This is not a formal presentation; it's a chance for you to ask your questions to our panel of experts, whose professions involve walking their clients through this journey. When you register, you will have a chance to pose questions in advance. You can bring additional questions to the session. AHA is pleased to team up with our "sister" village Mt Vernon At Home for this event--and we are grateful to work with Steve Gurney of ProAgingSourcebook, who will host this meeting. Panelists: Karen Gardiner, Simplify for Life Peter Crouch, Crouch Realty Group of McEnearney Associates Lori James, Ararity Auctions Maria Spetalnik, Conquer the Clutter

SPONSOR: Mount Vernon at Home
REGISTRATION: Required by June 24. https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_WX7608KBRPa6uaQVLsvH-g

Richard Wolf was a reporter and editor in Washington for USA TODAY and Gannett News Service from 1986 to 2021. He has covered all three branches of the federal government, from Congress to the White House and finally to the Supreme Court, where he was based for the past nine years. During that time, the court has issued landmark decisions on same-sex marriage, health care, voting rights, abortion and other major issues, and it has been transformed from a closely divided court to one dominated by conservative justices. Richard will address the court's personnel, past rulings, current cases and potential future vacancies. Part of Chevy Chase At Home's Guest Speaker Program.

Ridge Line to Red Line -- 200 Years in the Life of downtown Bethesda. Was there really a Civil War Battle of Bethesda? How much of Bethesda‘s history survives amidst the high rises that line Wisconsin Avenue? The answers are (a) yes; and (b) more than you probably think. Hank Levine, head of the Heritage Trail and Tour committee of the Bethesda Historical Society, will lead a tour for BMAV exploring Bethesda‘s past and learning how and why our town came to be what it is today. RSVPS are limited to 12. Meet at 9:30 am on the plaza in front of the Chevy Chase Trust complex. This is on the north side of East West Highway where it runs into Wisconsin Avenue. If you’re driving, the Waverly Street garage is 2 blocks away. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes – we’ll cover about 1 ½ miles over the course of 1 ½ to 2 hours. We will be outdoors virtually the entire time, but please wear a mask. We’ll be looking at 11" X 14" pictures as we walk; bring glasses if applicable. We will be stopping at Panera in the middle of the tour so you can use the bathroom and get a drink and/or snack, but feel free to bring water. We’ll walk up Wisconsin as far as the Bethesda Theatre; down as far as the C&P Building near Trader Joe’s; and end at the plaza in front of Ourisman Honda where the Crescent Trail crosses Bethesda Avenue. There’s a lot of interesting stuff to see and talk about, and I’ll try to move off of Wisconsin when possible, but expect some traffic noise and a couple of construction sites [welcome to downtown Bethesda in 2021]. Rain date June 27.
