Book Launch - Quakers Living in the Lion's Mouth: The Society of Friends in Northern Virginia, 1730-1863
Tuesday, May 22, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (EDT)
By tracing the evolution of white Virginians’ attitudes toward the Quaker community from its settlement in 1730 through the end of the Civil War, A. Glenn Crothers exposes the increasing hostility Quakers faced as the sectional crisis deepened.
Although this is an examination of a small community over time, Quakers Living in the Lion’s Mouth deals with larger historical issues, such as the evolving nature of southern identity, how religious values formed and evolved among a group, and how these beliefs shape behavior even in the face of increasing hostility and isolation.
Please join us for a wine and cheese reception preceeding the lecture celebrating this new publication.
A. Glenn Crothers, associate professor of history at the University of Louisville, is director of research at The Filson Historical Society and coeditor of Ohio Valley History.
Reservations are required.
