The Spirit of 1976
Tuesday, July 2
The American Revolution bicentennial observance in 1976 was the most significant commemorative event of the 20th century, and it revealed some of the most profound changes in American society and politics in the 1970s. Tammy S. Gordon will discuss her new book The Spirit of 1976: Commerce, Community, and the Politics of Commemoration and lead a discussion on the ways in which Americans shaped historical memory in the 1970s.
Our discussion will begin with your 1976 mementos, memories, and reflections, so be sure to bring them!
Seating is limited, so advance registration is recommended.
