“Is History Dead?” – Presented by James “Bud” Robertson, Jr.

The Blacksburg Museum & Cultural Foundation is pleased to welcome James “Bud” Robertson, Jr., Alumni Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History at Virginia Tech, for a special presentation on the subject of history. In a 2017 interview with the Roanoke Times, Professor Robertson remarked, “History is the best teacher one will ever have, we study the past — its warts and its beauty spots — to be better prepared for the challenges of the present and the future.” With that in mind, he’ll address the broader question “Is History Dead?” Given his long and distinguished career, Professor Robertson is one of the most qualified people to address the subject. During his 44 year career at Virginia Tech, he taught an estimated 20,000 or more students, and undoubtedly reached millions of people through books, essays, radio and television appearances, and public lectures. As the founding Executive Director of the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies, he is widely considered one of the most significant and influential scholars of the U.S. Civil War and Reconstruction Era. This lecture is free and open to the public, though space is limited so RSVP is required at info@blacksburghistory.org or by calling 540.558.0746.
