I’m pleased to announce that Dr. Paul Finkelman will return to ESD 112 February 4, 2010.  His talk on the Lincoln-Douglas Debates and the 1860 Election will help us bridge the work we did this summer on the root causes of the Civil War and the work we’ll be doing this spring on the war itself.  Dinner and registration will begin at 5:00; Dr. Finkelman’s program will run 5:30-8:30.  The program is free but seating is limited and advanced registration is required; please let me know if you plan to attend.
