Arthur St. Clair: Myth and History Lecture
This year’s Arthur St. Clair lecture will focus on the namesake of our annual event. Arthur St. Clair was a major-general in the Revolution and president of the Continental Congress and governor of the Northwest Territory.
Dr. Susan Sommers, professor of history at Saint Vincent College, will discuss St. Clair’s mythological persona crafted in by nineteenth century biographers, who sought to provide a nation recovering from civil war with sterling examples of heroes to emulate, even if their stories were not, strictly speaking, true. Sommers turns to her own extensive archival research to find evidence of Arthur St. Clair’s early life and explores the fascinating questions of what it means to be a hero.
Lecture will be held in the Ferguson Theater, Smith Hall, on the campus of The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg. This event is free and open to the public. Please call 724-836-7980 to ensure a seat. Read more about the upcoming lecture here: http://www.westmorelandhistory.org/index.p
