One of the most enjoyable aspects of my job as an educator and public historian is the opportunity to share my love of history with a wide range of audiences. Over the past fifteen years I have delivered talks at academic conferences, Civil War round tables, history education workshops, schools and a host of other settings throughout much of the country.
Unless otherwise noted, all upcoming dates are in support of my latest book, Searching for Black Confederates: The Civil War’s Most Persistent Myth. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to schedule an event.

There is no better opportunity for students and the general public to connect with the the past than when on site with a guide who can share what took place and encourage thoughtful reflection. I have led students to some of the most important historical sites of the civil rights movement in Atlanta, Montgomery, Jackson, and Memphis. I also regularly guide students and teachers to Civil War sites in Richmond, Washington, D.C. as well as popular battlefields in Gettysburg, Fredericksburg, Petersburg, and Sharpsburg.
Here in Boston I offer tours of the city’s Civil War monuments to the general public as well as history educators and students.
