Two Truths and a Lie (Zoom edition)
Members Only Virtual Event
Monday, July 20 | 7 pm

Back by popular demand! We invite all Cantigny members to a virtual game of Two Truths and a Lie, hosted by Jeffrey Anderson, McCormick House interpretation manager. This game, as in 2019, will focus on the family of Colonel Robert R. McCormick but with all-new questions. As publishers of the Chicago Tribune, the “World’s Greatest Newspaper,” and as owners of WGN Radio and WGN-TV, the McCormick’s were one of America’s most powerful and influential media families.

You will hear three stories, two historically accurate and one a downright lie. Can you separate truth from fiction? It’s sure to be a fun and educational online event!
