  • Lecture by Historian Paul Gilje.  Gilje will discuss one of the most important, tumultuous, and confusing elections in American history. Important because it marked the first time that presidential power transferred from one political party to another and marked a milestone in the growth of the American democratic tradition. Tumultuous because the election included an exchange of vile charges between political camps. And confusing because the process was arcane and complicated with shifting and different rules governing the process of selecting the electoral college. The lecture will include a book signing  of Gilje’s book Swear Like a Sailor.  6:30 PM to 7:30 PM (EDT) Members $5, Non-Members $10, Tickets.
