The East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club will meet Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 7:30 a.m. in The Cooper River Room at the Mount Pleasant Waterfront Park. We are pleased to have Dr. Adam Domby, an Assistant professor of History at the College of Charleston, as our guest speaker. An expert on Civil War and Reconstruction, he received his PhD and MA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he received his BA from Yale University. Breakfast catered by Dish and Design.
Dr. Adam Domby is a historian of the Civil War, Reconstruction, and the American South. His research focuses on how southerners fought their neighbors during the American Civil War and examines the legacy of those local fights that civil wars inevitably create. His current book manuscript project centers on the role these conflicts played in three divided southern communities during the Civil War and Reconstruction. Close examination of the social dynamics of these southern communities reveals new insights into why the Confederacy lost, why Reconstruction failed, and the distinctiveness of southern society, culture, and politics.
