The Wachters have been diving the world’s waters since the mid 1970’s, discovered over 35 wreck sites, published a Lake Erie shipwreck map, written several books, and authored numerous magazine articles. The Unwritten History Series is free and open to the public. All speakers are presented at Cleveland Grays Armory with a grant made possible by Cuyahoga Arts and Culture. Doors open at 6 pm. Presentations begin at 7 pm. A cash bar is available and a fee-based dinner (6:30 pm) may be purchased with advance registration.
