Special Speaker: Andrew Cayton

Andrew Cayton, Distinguished Professor of History at Miami University (Ohio), teaches courses in the history of North America in the 18th and early 19th centuries. He has written extensively about the struggle for control of the region west of the Appalachian Mountains and the emergence of political and cultural borders within the United States.

His interest in empires and borderlands as well as questions of power and consent led to his collaboration with Fred Anderson in The Dominion of War: Empire and Liberty in North America, 1500-2000 (2005) and to his current work, also with Fred Anderson, Imperial America, 1672-1764. He is also the author of the forthcoming Love in the Time of Revolution and has served as president of the Society for Historians of the Early American Republic.

He will be speaking at Campus Martius Museum on Sunday, April 7, 2013, in recognition of the 225th Anniversary of the Founding of Marietta. His talk will focus on the personal and professional regarding the legacy of Marietta's founders.
