World War I Lecture at Barnegat Lighthouse This Saturday

Southern Regional High School history teacher Jeff Brown will be the speaker at the Barnegat Lighthouse Lecture Series sponsored by the Friends of the Barnegat Lighthouse at 1 p.m. this Saturday, Feb. 16.

In his lecture, titled “The War to End All Wars,” Brown will focus on the day to day existence of American soldiers, known as the Doughboys, during World War I. He’ll give a PowerPoint presentation and display original WWI artifacts.

The history teacher has become a familiar face at branches of the Ocean County Library system and local historical societies where, over the years, he has spoken about the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War II and the Cold War as well as the so-called “Great War,” another nickname for WWI.
