Voices from History: Where Poetry and History Collide is a study of history through poetry. S. Thomas Summers provides a tour of the battlefields and camps of the Civil War through the eyes of Confederate soldier Hercules McGraw (via his book Private Hercules McGraw: Poems of the American Civil War), and David Vincenti offers a view of the life of Galileo Galilei that will surprise many who think they already know the famous astronomer. Through their compelling verse and discussion of the times about which their poems speak, Summers and Vincenti will entertain fans of poetry and fans of history alike.
Thus far the program has been very successful.
