In May of this year, Hillside presented one its most beloved events: the History Feast. This year we were treated to a conversation by some of the best minds of the Ancient, Medieval, and Renaissance World.
The characters (in chronological order) were:
Confucius (551- 479 BCE) (Giorgio Lo)
Plato (428 – 347 BCE) (Jackson Alford)
Gaius Julius Caesar (100 – 44 BCE) (Jan Deutsch)
Marcus Antonius (83 – 30 BCE) (Carter Morfitt)
Cleopatra VII Philopator (69 – 30 BCE) (Corinna Nelson)
Augustus Caesar (63 BCE – 14 CE) (Caelan Sun)
Gnaeus Julius Agricola (40 – 93 CE) (Clark Weitkamp)
Hildegard of Bingen (1098 – 1179 ) (Rosie Rogal)
Khubilai Khan (1215 – 1294) (Charlie Catino)
Lorenzo De Medici (1449 – 1492) (Paul Pfenning)
Niccolò Machiavelli (1469 – 1527) (Cooper Teixeira)
Ferdinand Magellan(1480 – 1521) (Nicholas Anderson)
Elizabeth I (1533 – 1603) (Isabel Wallace)
Nothing of this scale or magnitude can be accomplished without the help and dedication of a multitude of volunteers. A special thank you to Liz Dubois and Wendy Medlock for coordinating this year’s event and to all the parent and student volunteers who made it such a wonderful evening.
