Start your summer reading list early! A duo of historians, Douglas Egerton and Leigh Fought, both on the faculty at LeMoyne College, will discuss and sign copies of their new books. Egerton’s “Thunder at the Gates” is the recipient of the prestigious 2017 Gilder Lehrman Lincoln Prize and chronicles the first black regiment to join the Union Army during the Civil War. Fought’s “Women in the World of Frederick Douglass” explores the often-hidden network of relationships with women that shaped the famed abolitionist’s life and career.
