Guest speaker Sarah Lawrence College Associate Professor of History Dr. Eileen Ka-May Cheng presented insights on America’s First Civil War: The Loyalists and the American Revolution. Using a dialogue format between two 18th century Americans, she addressed the perspectives of both Loyalists and Revolutionaries and why they differed so sharply on the question of independence from Britain.
