Columbia County Historical Society and Hudson Area Library are set to co-sponsor a presentation by author and historian Dr. Christopher Leahy entitled “Historical Significance of Impeachment in the U.S.” .
Leahy will deliver an overview of the historical significance of impeachment in the United States, including: insights on impeachment, its historical basis, constitutional significance, and the impeachment process.
Additionally he will share details from his forthcoming book – President without a Party: The Life of John Tyler – on the 10th US President John Tyler who was the first American president to contend with the threat of impeachment.
Dr. Leahy, author and Professor of History at Keuka College is an expert in States’ Rights; the American Colonies; the American Revolution; and the Early National Period, and is formerly associate professor at South Eastern Louisiana State University.
This is an historical overview of the significance of U.S. Impeachment. Advance parameters will be set to insure the lecture and questions do not go off topic and are neither partisan nor polemical. Organizers have announced they will end questions if they stray from the facts of the topic.
This event will be held on Saturday, February 1st, at 4 pm at the Hudson Area Library, located at 51 5th Street, Hudson, New York. Admission is $15 for CCHS and Hudson Area Library members; $20 for non-members.
