Inspired by Colonial Williamsburg's FB post on having to substitute for today's A Difference of Opinion, here's a literal eleven hour #tbt /early #fbf to April 2014 to one of my favorite @colonialwmsburg programs, Jefferson Henry religion debates. @thomasjeffersonbillbarker and Richard Schumann/Patrick Henry are simply top knotch interpreters, scholars and gentleman #publichistory
New adventures in an old building: two of my @myrwu best as inaugural @newporthistory #publichistory interns, setting a wicked smart standard for fresh thinking about the field and its practice at #RevolutionHouse .
Three years later I'm still shocked by the fact that this sits a few feet away from my desk. Words cannot explain how I feel about being allowed to transcribe and translate a small fraction of this work. There's overwhelming joy but also a heaviness because if the trust that has been placed in me.
If anyone needs me for the next 20 or so weeks I'll be bonding with Augustine and a few other saints of the church. Mean Cup gift cards and/or deliveries will be graciously accepted.

В вагоне метро попалась вот такая реклама. Интересно, сколько она продержится в наши времена реванша неосталинистов? Весьма непросто сочетается в российской официальной символической политике и культ Великой Отечественной войны (на чем, собственно, и "созрело" поколение тридцатилетних фанатов Сталина) и неприятие репрессиий против сотрудников госорганов с отрицанием массового характера репрессий против населения #память#publichistory#rupublichistory#publichistorymoscow#мосметро#метро#мемориал
