Shell Point Academy of Lifelong Learning presents author & lecturer Robert N. Macomber for a series of events.


“The Spanish-Cuban-American War” Lecture Series [March 14th, March 16th, March 21st, March 23rd]
Join me for this four part exploration into how our nearest international neighbor became an independent nation, including the extended, crucial role America played in that effort, and how what happened then still affects the world today. It is the story of the United States of America becoming a global power as it took on new responsibilities and challenges which would last for the next one hundred-twenty years. This look at the Spanish-American War focuses on its Caribbean theater of operations, and, as a bonus, it will offer insight for my readers on the subject matter of my newest novel, An Honorable War, the 13th in my Honor Series of action packed thrillers.

PART 4 ~ A Matter Of Honor – The Naval Battle Of Santiago: Learn the amazing facts of the climactic naval battle of the war in Cuba, which displayed desperate measures of Spanish bravery and American skill. But that great sea fight wasn’t the end of the war in Cuba! The little-known final phase of the war nearly became a complete disaster for the Americans. This session will also address the epilogue of the Spanish-Cuban-American War, the consequences of which are still very much with us today.
