Nguyen Thai – Hero of 1400’s Vietnam

Lt Col (Ret) Joseph Meissner spoke at a gathering of the ClevelandePeople.Com Food Adventurers at Pho Thang Vietnamese restaurant in Cleveland Ohio.  The Food Adventurers are people who like to experience new foods and learn about different cultures.  Joe told the story of Nguyen Thai who in 1418 assisted a wealthy farmer, Lê Lợi, in the Lam Sơn uprising against the Ming and launched a siege at Đông Quan (now Hanoi), the capital of the Ming occupation.
