Red Scare in the Green Mountains: Vermont in the McCarthy Era

February 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Third Thursday Lecture Series
Vermont History Museum, Montpelier, VT
Speaker:  Rick Winston

What happened in Vermont when the anti-Communist fear known as the “Red Scare” swept the country? Quite a bit, as it turns out. Rick Winston explores some forgotten history as we see how a small, rural “rock-ribbed Republican” state with a historically libertarian streak handled the hysteria of the time.
