MORE ABOUT WHAT IS UPCOMING…

My name is Bill Wiemuth and so far in 2020 I have produced more than 75 History Highlights Series video presentations sharing fascinating stories from United States history.

As professional presenters and entertainers, we have endured the cancellation of more than 200 of our 2020 engagements. So, we are working hard to creatively adapt our expertise and reinvent ourselves to serve an online audience. We are now presenting some Zoom lectures and entertainment for families, groups, and online events. Every day is a new adventure and we look forward to sharing with you a continuing journey of discovery.

This is such a meaningful and challenging time in our country’s history. These past months, I certainly have missed sharing American history stories with audiences onboard riverboat cruises. This is one way that I can still virtually connect with you and continue our fascination with these tales and perhaps even reach a broader audience. Wouldn’t that be incredible for more Americans to better understand their country’s story. Fascinating people. Remarkable events. Significant impacts. I am so excited to share these presentations with you. All the best! 
–Bill
