Join the The Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Military Park on Monday, November 13th at 6pm for their Speaker Series featuring “The Naval Battle of Guadalcanal,” presented by Steven Tedesco. Director of Education, Steven Tedesco, will present about the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal and its pivotal moment in World War II history.
On November 13, 1942, a violent explosion engulfed USS Juneau (CL-52) and the ship seemed to vanish from sight. The story of service and sacrifice of USS Juneau, particularly the loss of the five Sullivan brothers, had a powerful impact on the U.S. Navy and the nation as a whole, then and today.
The program will begin at 6pm in the Buffalo Naval Park’s Museum Building on the Second Floor. It is free and open-to-the-public. Register here to reserve your seat.
