Genghis Khan exhibit (video)

Reagan Library; Amber Larson, Dhr. Seven, Wisdom Quarterly

Question: What do pants, the Pony Express, cannons, paper money, skis, violins, bakhlava, and “hooray!” all have in common? Answer: Genghis Khan introduced them all to the West. Not Genghis the brutal barbarian of Western history books, but Genghis the great civilizer and lawmaker, whose empire brought each of these innovations to the west, including 13th Century Mongolian-style democracy. Now the most comprehensive exhibition of Genghis Khan and his treasures invades the Reagan Library, its only Southern California stop on an international tour that has drawn more than a million visitors. Daily live cultural performances within the exhibit at 11:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 3:00 pm! More
