James Loewen and the Filson Historical Conference on Secession in the "Louisville Courier-Journal"

The Louisville Courier-Journal has a lengthy article about the Filson Historical Conference on secession and James Loewen at this link.

From the article:

"Loewen will give the opening address of the three-day conference, which begins Thursday at the Filson Historical Society.

The conference topic, “Secessions: From the American Revolution to the Civil War,” coincides with the 150th anniversary of South Carolina's secession from the Union and will explore moments in U.S. history when Americans threatened or acted upon a perceived right to secede from state or national authorities."

"In true Loewenesque fashion, the University of Vermont professor's address is titled “Lies My Teacher Told Me About Secession.”
