100 Maps that Changed the World: Discovery of the Americas and the Establishment of the United States. From the Asbury Family Collection
You won’t want to miss out on this unique opportunity to meet and hear Neal Asbury in person, a self-made highly successful entrepreneur who has a passion for art and United States history as manifested by the original large maps collection, as he leads you through the historical development of the United States from the early 1400’s to the establishment of our country. Those who have witnessed this extraordinary exhibit in Neal Asbury’s presence, which also includes a showcase of the Nuremberg Chronicle and other original historical items, have been fascinated by this collection and the accompanying pin-dropping oration.
