The people of the United States have faced and triumphed over multiple national tragedies of consequence in the past 100 years. In the transformational periods following these crises, it has been said that "Americans are most truly American." Join Professor Emeritus of History Jon Bridgman in his 15th and final year leading our evocative Winter Lecture Series, as he examines periods of pain and perseverence initiated by man and by nature, and how we have prevailed. We invite you to benefit from his informed historical perspective in examining the effects on the U.S. economy, political structure, and national morale, with particular attention to our country's determined recovery from such unexpected catastrophes
