LUNCH WITH BOOKS: Wheeling - Crossroads of America

January 28, 2020
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Calendar Event Photo

C.J. Kaiser will discuss a little-known event that took place in Wheeling, Va., in 1840. The talk was inspired by an 1840 broadside promoting Wheeling as host for a regional Whig Party political rally advocating the election of William Henry Harrison as president and John Tyler as vice president of the United States. Their slogan was “Tippecanoe and Tyler Too.” The talk explores Henry Clay’s connection to Wheeling and the prominent Wheeling men involved in organizing the Whig convention who would be divided by the familiar national issues that led to the Civil War.
