Historical Specialist On George Washington To Visit UT


(Toledo, OH) Pofessor R. Don Higginbotham, noted author of Washington: Uniting a Nation (2002), will lecture on Thursday, February 16, 2005, at 7:30 p.m. in the Driscoll Center Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. The title of the lecture is "Washington's Remarkable Generation," and his visit is the latest in the History Department's Engaged History Lecture Series.

A specialist in American history to 1815 and the Dowd Professor of American History at the University of North Carolina, Professor Higginbotham has published several books on the revolutionary period, including most recently Washington: Uniting a Nation (2002).

He is currently at work on a book which will be a non-military account of Washington and the American Revolution. Higginbotham has done a number of studies in comparative revolutions-America and Mexico, America and Vietnam, and the American Revolution and the Confederate Revolution. He has edited the papers of James Iredell, a North Carolina and Federalist leader, and in 2001 published George Washington Reconsidered: Selected Essays.

This event is co-sponsored by the University of Toledo Department of History and the Fort Meigs Military History Roundtable, and is made possible by gifts from department alumni.
