"Hannibal's Secret Weapon"
Friday, March 15 at 4:00PM to 4:50PM in the Pine Room.
Hannibal led an army with elephants over the Alps in 218 BCE, invading Italy. One of the greatest commanders in history, his tactics are studied worldwide even after more than 2,000 years. Julius Caesar, Charlemagne, Napoleon and Patton are only a few who copied Hannibal's maneuvers, especially his ability to defeat larger armies, using nature as a weapon.
