GCC History Club presents discussion on 'Ely Parker: A Man of Two Worlds'

posted by Billie Owens in history, GCC events.

Genesee Community College's history club is excited to announce the addition of Jeff Donohue's discussion on "Ely Parker: A Man of Two Worlds" to its Historical Horizon's Lecture Series.

Independent historian and former director of the Holland Land Office and Museum, Jeff Donahue will be at GCC's Batavia Campus on Wednesday, March 7, at 7 p.m. in room T102 of the Conable Technology Building.

Donohue's talk will examine the challenges Parker faced living in two worlds. During the Civil War, Ely Samuel Parker, a Seneca chief, struggled against prevailing prejudices to make his mark. He was so successful that he would become the man entrusted to copy the terms of surrender at Appomattox Court House.

Event Date and Time: 
Wednesday, March 7, 2018 - 7:00pm
Location: 
GCC, T102 Conable Technology Bldg., 1 College Drive, Batavia, NY 14020
