Join us at a workshop to piece together a story of how an assassin from Wurttemburg, Germany shows up with U.S. troops during the Mexican –American War.  Anne Marie Ackerman, author of the recently released book Death of an Assassin, will share sources she found in German and American libraries as we all put on our detective hats to solve the mystery of archival research.  Discover how the U.S. military relied upon recent immigrants for its soldiers, the fascinating Siege of Veracruz, and even a link with the infamous General E. Lee.
