Join us for a lively after-hours discussion of the "Business Plot," an alleged conspiracy in 1934 to overthrow President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a military coup. How were the Brintons involved? Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, a Brinton family member, was allegedly to serve as dictator in the aftermath of the coup! Sign up to learn more about one of the most decorated Marines in US history, and to discuss the facts behind this alleged conspiracy to overthrow the US government.
