WHS/WLA Matthew Warshauer: Andrew Jackson—Hero or Despot at Wilton Historical Society
Sunday, March 10, 4 – 5:30 p.m.
Professor Matthew Warshauer returns to the area to shed some light on the 7th President of the United States Andrew Jackson. Was he a masterful politician who ushered in a new era of democratic politics or a loose cannon with no vision for the American republic. In his latest book, Andrew Jackson in Context, Prof. Warshauer examines differing perspectives on the subject. Warshauer has been a popular guest speaker in two previous Wilton Historical Society/Wilton Library scholarly lecture series. He is a Professor of History at Central Connecticut State University and author of Andrew Jackson and the Politics of Martial Law. See the registration page below for speaker details. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Registration essential. Co-sponsored by the Wilton Historical Society and Wilton Library.
