Jefferson and Hamilton: A Conversation with John Ferling


Savannah, Ga., October 17, 2013 – The Georgia Historical Society and Live Oak Public Libraries have partnered to bring award-winning historian and author Dr. John Ferling to Savannah for an evening of entertaining and enlightening conversation about his new book, Jefferson and Hamilton, The Rivalry That Forged A Nation.

“John Ferling ranks with David McCullough and Joseph Ellis as one of our country’s best historians of the American Revolution,” said Dr. Stan Deaton, Senior Historian for the Georgia Historical Society and host of the evening’s discussion. “He has spent a lifetime writing about the Founding Fathers and his penetrating analysis and clear prose help us better understand the world they lived in and the American republic they created.  Why do the Founders still matter and why are we still so fascinated by them? No one knows better than John Ferling.”

Dr. Ferling is Professor Emeritus of History at the University of West Georgia, and a leading authority on the American Revolution.  He is the author of many books, including John Adams, Independence and The Ascent of George Washington.

A Conversation with John Ferling will take place Tuesday, October 22 at 6:00 p.m. in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church, 223 Bull Street, Chippewa Square, Savannah.  The event is free and open to the public.  Copies of Jefferson and Hamilton: The Rivalry That Forged a Nation will be available for purchase at the event and Dr. Ferling will sign copies immediately following the conclusion of the discussion.
