Latest news from Berwick Arts Club
The next meeting of Berwick Arts Club will be held on Wednesday, February 24, from 7.30pm to 9.30pm, in the Berwick Voluntary Forum (CAB) building in Tweed Street.
Lars Rose will give a talk entitled ‘When America was Russian – Russia’s Eastward Expansion, 1733-1867’. That America, or at least part of it, once belonged to Russia is perhaps one of the less well known facts of history.
We shall look at how Russian expansion brought it to the edge of the Pacific and eventually across it to where it established ‘Russian America’. We shall also look at the successes and failures, and why the Russians were not successful while other European powers were.
