Tuesday, January 9, 2018
In 1900 Antarctica represented the last major unclaimed area of the world.
Great Britain would launch an expedition to explore and claim this hostile
region for her Empire. A young Royal Navy officer, Robert Falcon Scott, was
chosen to head this mission. Scott would fail in his attempt to reach the
Pole but in death, would soar in English status as a “True, noble, gallant
Englishman”. Others including Amundsen and Shackleton would risk their
lives to reach the pole. Why would they risk so much…for some it was the
hope of fame and glory. For others, it was to serve the Empire. Join local
historian, Bob Begin for another entertaining evening at the library.
