The American Revolution and the Origins of American Multiculturalism

WCHP Lecture Hall

Liam Riordan

Free and open to the public

This illustrated lecture explains the American Revolution in the Philadelphia region from a rarely considered perspective: how did the Revolution draw upon and reshape the cultural diversity of early American people? We will learn how the distinctive identities of Quakers, African Americans, and Pennsylvania Germans shaped the Revolutionary mobilization in crucial ways that had lasting consequences for postwar American political life.
