McPherson Lecture

Gustavus students, alumni, and friends had a unique opportunity to connect with and learn from Pulitzer Prize winning author James McPherson ’58 on April 16 and 17. McPherson is the George Henry Davis ’86 Professor of History Emeritus at Princeton University and one of our greatest living Civil War Historians. He has written numerous books, including Battle Cry of Freedom, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1989; For Cause and Comrades, which won the prestigious Lincoln Prize in 1998; and Tried by War, which won the 2009 Lincoln Prize. McPherson visited Greg Kaster's Civil War Seminar, spoke at Chapel, gave a public lecture in the Twin Cities, signed copies of his books and was a guest on MPR's "The Daily Circuit."
