Winter Court: Cocktails and Lecture at the University Club
February 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$115.00
We return to the lovely 9th floor rooms of the University Club for this cocktail reception and a lecture by historian and author Christopher Minty
Business Attire. Ladies and Guests are invited.
In Unfriendly to Liberty, Christopher F. Minty examines the origins of loyalism in New York City between roughly 1768 and 1775. By examining the political and social behavior of New Yorkers who became loyalists, Minty offers a new interpretation of the coming of the Revolution and reorients our understanding of the origins of American political practice. Minty is an editor at the Center for Digital Editing at the University of Virginia, where he is managing editor of the Naval Documents of the American Revolution and contributes to The Papers of George Washington. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Stirling (Scotland).
Do not miss this always entertaining evening.
