Welcome to Liberty Classroom! I am excited to be part of this great group of scholars and am honored that you are taking the time to engage and dive into United States History with me. I have been a history “geek” since I was 13 and visited Jamestown and Williamsburg for the first time. I hope you enjoy my lectures as much as I enjoyed recording them. I have a Ph.D. in American History from the University of South Carolina and was Clyde Wilson’s last doctoral student. I am the author or co-author of four books, two of which are forthcoming this year. I look forward to your posts and questions. Thanks!
