The “What-Ifs” of the Past: Speculations on Counterfactual History: In this lecture, Charles F. Bryan, Jr. will address several counterfactuals in American history and try to answer them, including the following: What if the East and West coasts and all land in between had been reversed? How would American history have been different? What if Virginia had not joined the Confederacy? What if the South had won the Civil War? What if Truman had not dropped the atomic bomb?
Led by Charles F. Bryan Jr., founding partner with Daniel P. Jordan of Bryan & Jordan Consulting, LLC, which specializes in strategic planning, fund raising, board and staff relations, and executive searches for nonprofit institutions and higher education. Bryan retired in 2008, after a thirty year career as a public historian.
