Kick Ass Oregon History: Shanghaied in Portland LIVE
Admission: $5.00 suggested donation
Kick Ass Oregon History is proud to bring their Shanghaied in Portland podcast to life! KOAH will talk about why this evil deed took place, who the major players were, and how come Portland had the reputation as the worst port in the world when it came to shanghaing. In fact, it was such a community-wide problem that Dr. Edgar Hill delivered a sermon on the Evils of Shanghaing in Portland.
Resident Historian Doug Kenck-Crispin will be on hand to discuss the controversy of the so-called Shanghai Tunnels and why he believes them to be a complete fiction!
Come down and learn all you ever wanted about shanghaiing, and the implications it has on what Portlanders consider to be the history of our fair city.
