The Battles of Germantown: Effective Public History in America

David Young, Author


 David   Young is Executive Director of the Delaware Historical Society and   previous Executive Director of Cliveden. He will discuss his book, The Battles of Germantown: Effective Public History in America.
 

Known as America’s most historic neighborhood, Germantown has   distinguished itself by using public history initiatives to forge   community. Progressive programs about ethnic history, postwar urban   planning, and civil rights have helped make historic preservation and   public history meaningful. The Battles of Germantown considers what these efforts can tell us about public history’s practice and purpose in the United States.
