In the second of a two-part lecture series, Dr. Don Hickey, Wayne State College Professor of History will discuss the military and diplomatic history of the Revolutionary War.

“How did the new nation prevail on the battlefields of America as well as in the diplomatic salons of Europe so that in the end, Americans won not only the war but also the peace?” asks Hickey.

He is best known for his books, “The War of 1812: A Forgotten Conflict” (University of Illinois Press) and “Nebraska Moments: Glimpses of Nebraska’s Past” (University of Nebraska Press).
