Keynote: The 2019 Montgomery County History Conference

January 26, 2019


Each year in January, the Montgomery County Historical Society holds a day-long conference on various aspects of local history.  Upwards of 200 people attend this annual gathering, which has been held since 2007.  It is a great event for local history buffs and anyone interested in learning more about Maryland’s most populous jurisdiction.  From a 1900 population of about 30,000, the county now has more than 1 million inhabitants. Formerly homogeneous, it is today a vibrant multi-cultural mosaic of people from all over the globe.

I am greatly honored to have been asked to deliver the keynote address at the 13th annual conference, to be held at the Germantown campus of Montgomery College, just off I-270.  Upwards of 200 people attend each year.  My topic will be coming to grips with Montgomery County’s antebellum and postbellum past and its relevance to today.

I will be adding more details as they become available.
