VHS Banner Lecture Around the Corner…Dec. 6

courtesy the Library of Virginia

Thursday, December 6th at noon I will be delivering a Banner Lecture at the Virginia Historical Society. (Previous lecturers include distinguished historians such as Simon Schama, Lorena Walsh, Rhys Isaac, Thomas E. Buckley, S.J. and Ira Berlin.)  There will be a booksigning in the museum shop immediately following the event. The lecture will also be posted on the VHS website, so those who miss the actual lecture in Richmond will still be able to view it.

Signed books may be pre-ordered here. I’m looking forward to a great audience–the historical buffs of Virginia never dissapoint!

Also, an attendee has promised to bring an original letter by John Tyler (yes, the former President, Vice President, Governor, etc.), who was apparently at the Richmond Theater when it burned! More on that later…
