LETTERS FROM AN AMERICAN
Heather Cox Richardson is a professor of American history. Her newsletter explores what it means, and what it has meant, to be an American. These were the same questions a famous observer asked in a book of letters he published in 1782, the year before the Treaty of Paris ended the Revolutionary War. Hector St. John de Crevecoeur called his book “Letters from an American Farmer.” We will broadcast a recording of the daily letters at 6 pm, 11 pm and 8 am the following day CST.
You can find the Letters and more about our Resident Professor here: https://heathercoxrichardson.substack.com
