James McPherson, respected Civil War historian and past AHA president, will partake in a daylong colloquium in Andover, Massachusetts on August 25th. Lawrence R. Velvel, Dean of the Massachusetts School of Law will lead the event, entitled “A Day With James McPherson: Interpretations Old and New,” with audience-based discussions focused around McPherson’s most recent book This Mighty Scourge. The events of the day, and the discussions generated, will be made into a television program to be aired in select areas of the country. Participants will also receive a DVD copy of the program to use in the classroom.
