Virtual First Friday: “George Rogers Clark & William Croghan” with Gwynne Potts

Start your Independence Day early with a story of our founding generation!  Historian Gwynne Tuell Potts will share from her new dual biography of George Rogers Clark and William Croghan.  Both veterans of the Revolution, Clark and Croghan had very different experiences, but their lives were bound by family ties and shared political ideology.  Join us via Zoom, and discover how they helped to shape early Kentucky and the young United States.  To register for this FREE virtual event, please send an email to khseducation@ky.gov, and you will receive instructions on how to connect.

Gwynne Potts is the former Executive Director of Louisville’s Historic Locust Grove, where she helped to preserve and interpret the remaining 55-acres of William Croghan’s estate as an example of early nineteenth-century frontier America, and to share the stories of the many people who contributed to the history of the site, emphasizing the experiences of George Rogers Clark, Revolutionary War hero and founder of Louisville.
