The Battles of Germantown: Effective Public History in America

David Young, Author

Falls of Schuylkill Library, Midvale Ave. and Warden Dr.

Wednesday, February 5, 2020, 6:30 PM (immediately following East Falls Historical Society Members Meeting at 6 PM)


David Young is Executive Director of the Delaware Historical Society and previous Executive Director of Cliveden. He will discuss his book, The Battles of Germantown: Effective Public History in America.

Known as America’s most historic neighborhood, Germantown has distinguished itself by using public history initiatives to forge community. Progressive programs about ethnic history, postwar urban planning, and civil rights have helped make historic preservation and public history meaningful. The Battles of Germantown considers what these efforts can tell us about public history’s practice and purpose in the United States.
