Former Niagara County Legislator Lee Simonson will present a series of eight stories on events that impacted American history in "Eight Miracles that Saved America" at 2 p.m. March 26 at the Niagara History Center, 215 Niagara St.

Simonson, a past president of the Historical Association of Lewiston, will speculate about what really happened in each instance — taking place from 1755-1942 — and explore whether the outcome was blind luck or truly a miracle.

“Some of the things that happened are more like Ripley’s ‘Believe it or Not,’ but each provided a critical tipping point in America’s creation and survival,” he says. “Did God have a hand in America’s success? Did miracles really happen? We’ll examine the evidence and folks can come to their own conclusions.”

Named Town of Lewiston Citizen of the Year in 2014, Simonson was also awarded the national Spirit of 1812 award in Washington, D.C., last April for his 1812 Bicentennial volunteer work, including directing Lewiston’s Tuscarora Heroes Monument project and the Battle of Queenstown Heights reenactment in Ontario.  In addition to leading the Historical Association of Lewiston, he was also director of the Freedom Crossing Monument.

Simonson served as a Niagara County Legislator for 32 years, retiring in 2005. He has since devoted his time to his businesses and volunteering for historical projects and causes.

Donations will be accepted at the program, which includes refreshments. Call 434-7433 for details.
