Red Scare in The Green Mountains: A Discussion with Author Rick Winston & Vermont Historian Michael Sherman
What happened in Vermont when the anti-Communist fear known as the "Red Scare" swept the country? Quite a bit, as it turns out. Author Rick Winston and Vermont historian Michael Sherman will explore 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.
Rick will also read from his new book, "Red Scare in the Green Mountains: Vermont in the McCarthy Era 1946-1960."
Free and open to the public.
