Union: The Struggle to Forge the Story of United States Nationhood
MARCH 14: We welcome New York Times bestselling historian and award-winning journalist Colin Woodard to our Sunday Forum.

The U.S. is an extremely fragile creation because it was formed as an ad hoc alliance of rival colonies, each with very different ethnographic, political, and religious characteristics. Woodard describes the 19th century effort to create and propagate a national narrative for the U.S. that could unite its disparate regional cultures, a battle that continues to rage today with existential stakes.

Colin Woodard is a New York Times Bestselling historian, Pulitzer finalist, Polk Award winning journalist, and author of six books including American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America and American Character: The Epic Struggle Between Individual Liberty and the Common Good.
