>>> What inspired the American Revolution? Was it a fight to secure freedom
>>> for all or bondage for some? Did the Patriots struggle for liberty or
>>> property? How should contemporary Americans regard the causes, character
>>> and legacy of the war that led to the nation’s founding? In recent months,
>>> some questions about the role of slavery in the American Revolution have
>>> been at the center of a raging debate triggered by The New York Times
>>> Magazine’s 1619 Project. To dig more deeply into the history of this
>>> period, The Times has convened an evening of informed discussion with
>>> leading scholars of the era, historians with a range of views who have done
>>> primary research on the Revolutionary Era and slavery in early America and
>>> will speak to the evidence and source material underlying the debate.
>>>
>>> Arguments about the nation’s founding are nothing new. Almost since the
>>> moment the first bullets flew, 250 years ago in March 1770, debates about
>>> the causes of the Revolution have proliferated. Every decade since,
>>> Americans’ understanding of the war has been deepened by new sources and
>>> new historical scholarship. Today in an age of disinformation and
>>> propaganda, it is critical to understand not only our history, but our
>>> historiography, the complex and contentious ways that American historians
>>> have built on the work of their predecessors, revising and clarifying the
>>> story of our nation’s past.
>>>
>>> Join us on March 6, 2020, for a spirited conversation with historians
>>> whose original research has helped us understand the complicated moment
>>> that gave birth to our republic.
>>>
>>> The panelists are:
>>>
>>> *Annette Gordon-Reed *
>>> Charles Warren Professor of American Legal History and Professor of
>>> History, Harvard University
>>>
>>>
>>> *Eliga Gould *
>>> Professor of History, University of New Hampshire
>>>
>>> *Gerald Horne *
>>> Moores Professor of History and African American Studies, University of
>>> Houston
>>>
>>>
>>> *Alan Taylor*
>>> Thomas Jefferson Foundation Chair, Department of History, University of
>>> Virginia
