Commemorating Maine’s Statehood Webinar with Dr. Liam Riordan

Maine’s path to statehood in 1820 followed years of tensions with the political and economic powers of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, of which Maine was a part. Now, 200 years later, remnants of those early political, economic, and cultural issues remain. As Maine celebrates its bicentennial as a state, what can we learn by revisiting Maine’s evolution over these many years? Professor Liam Riordan will address those issues and will take questions from members of the webinar’s audience.
