Historic Sotterly Lecture

We are excited to see local historical institution Historic Sotterley is offering a live stream lecture next week.
“Dr. Alan Taylor, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, holds the Thomas Jefferson Foundation Chair. A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner in American History, Taylor will speak to his newest publication, Thomas Jefferson’s Education: A social and political history of education in Virginia with an emphasis on Jefferson’s experiences as a student, and his role in creating republican post-war alternative, the University of Virginia. The book highlights the revolution’s separation of church and state in fundamentally altering political culture and educational expectations in Virginia.”The live stream will be held on May 20 at 7 p.m.Museums close to home and across the world have continued to amaze and impress us with how they have switched gears to online platforms to continue educating the public. Great job, Sotterley!For more information, visit Historic Sotterley’s event page.
