As a new feature of the 2016-2017 Georgia History Festival, GHS will highlight a special event coordinated by an organization within our statewide Affiliate Chapter Program. Throughout the month of February, the Funk Heritage Center will host a series of lectures about topics ranging from the Cherokee Phoenix newspaper to Reconstruction. Beginning on February 7, Dr. William Rawlings will present his lecture titled Controversial History: The Political Nature of Reconstruction 1865-1877. On February 14, Dr. George Lamplugh will talk about The News from the Cherokee: Elias Boudinot and the Cherokee Phoenix 1828 and, on February 21, Dan Roper, editor of Georgia Backroads Magazine will present James Vann: A Man Feared by Many and Loved by Few. All lectures will be held at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays. You may view the event programs by clicking here.
