Assistant Professor of History Daniel Tortora presented his research in November at the 27th annual Jumonville French and Indian War Seminar in western Pennsylvania. On Nov. 6 he joined scholars for a tour of French and Indian War sites, including Fort Necessity National Battlefield and the grave of Major General Edward Braddock. On Nov. 7 Tortora addressed the seminar, presenting a talk titled “The Cherokee Offensive of 1760 and the Origins of the American Revolution.” His lecture was inspired by his 2015 book, Carolina in Crisis: Cherokees, Colonists, and Slaves in the American Southeast, 1756–1763 (University of North Carolina Press).
