Noon – 2 p.m.
Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History
Dr. Honor Sachs
On America’s western frontier, myths of prosperity concealed the often brutal conditions endured by women, slaves, orphans and the poor. As poverty and unrest took root in 18th century Kentucky, western lawmakers championed ideas about whiteness, manhood and patriarchal authority to help stabilize a politically fractious frontier.
Kentucky Colonel and Western Carolina University history professor Honor Sachs combines rigorous scholarship with an engaging narrative to examine how conditions in Kentucky facilitated the expansion of rights for white men in ways that would become a model for citizenship in the country as a whole. Endorsed by many prominent western historians, this groundbreaking work is a major contribution to frontier scholarship.
