Digital Resources for Georgia’s Students: Dispatches with Dr. Stan Deaton

The Georgia Historical Society presents “Dispatches from Off the Deaton Path,” a new short video series from our Senior Historian, Dr. Stan Deaton, the Dr. Elaine B. Andrews Distinguished Historian at the Georgia Historical Society. On Tuesdays and Fridays each week Stan discusses different books, topics, and events as they relate to Georgia and American history.

Or you may know him from his popular podcast, Off the Deaton Path where he interviews book authors, homicide detectives, Pulitzer Prize winners, beer lovers, and a host of other interesting people, as well as discussions on books, sports, movies, and more, especially as they relate to American history.
