New Talk: Library of VA, March 15!

Brand new lecture at the Library of Virginia, this Thursday, March 15! We’ll discuss post-fire recovery in Richmond. How did Virginians recover after such a horrific event? After we follow the survival story of Louis Hue Girardin, we’ll look at some documented treatments for the emotional, spiritual, and medical distress that Virginians suffered post-Theater fire. (I promise you’ll remember the part about Early Republic medical treatments…)
