Presented by the UVaClub of Savannah and the Georgia Historical Society
DR. WILLIAM FERRARO, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
OF THE PAPERS OF GEORGE WASHINGTON
Savannah, Ga., September 28, 2016 – The Georgia Historical Society and the UVaClub of Savannah will present a special program Thursday, September 29th: George Washington, Leadership, and Global Revolution: Are there lessons from the First Brexit for the Modern World?
The program will be a lively conversation with Dr. William Ferraro, Acting Editor-in-Chief & Managing Editor of the Papers of George Washington and Dr. Stan Deaton, the Dr. Elaine B. Andrews Distinguished Historian at the Georgia Historical Society, discussing topics from the Founding Fathers to global conflicts to presidential elections.
“Studying George Washington’s leadership and the challenges he faced at home and abroad can give us insight into the problems we face today,” says Dr. Deaton. “Balancing security and liberty has been a thorny issue from the beginning, and Washington faced the same issues we still struggle with. With our own presidential election looming, his leadership as our first president can still shed light on the challenge of maintaining a democratic-republic in a dangerous world.”
The program will take place Thursday, September 29, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Savannah. The program is free and open to the public.
