Alabama: The Making of an American State
Edwin Bridges, Director Emeritus, Alabama Department of Archives and History
Date and Time: Thursday, March 2 at 3 p.m.
Location: Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium, Ground Floor, Ralph Brown Draughon Library
Filling a gap in the literature between academic histories directed towards scholars and college students and textbook histories aimed at the 4th grade., Bridges, presents the long and storied history of the state of Alabama in a magnificently illustrated volume that conveys the magisterial sweep of Alabama’s rich, difficult, and remarkable history with verve, eloquence, and an unblinking eye.
