An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Thursday, repeating until April 27, 2017

FREE
American-Revolution

The seeds of revolution were planted when colonial soldiers fought side by side with their British brothers against the French and Indians in the 1750s and 60s in what Europeans called the Seven Years War. They sprouted when England tried to make its colonies pay their “fair share” of the cost of their defense. They bloomed amid leaves of tea in Boston harbor.

The course will offer an eight session exploration of the American Revolution from 1763 to the surrender of Cornwallis in 1881. Each session will include three 30-minute lectures by Professor Allen C. Guelzo of Gettysburg College.

The Great Courses screenings are in the Garden Room on Thursday mornings at 10:15am on the lower level of the Library building. It is free and open to all. The program is curated by Harry Stanton. This course is part of the Great Courses series of CDs and DVDs that are available from the library.
