Rowan History Club to learn about Revolution

The Rowan History Club will meet Tuesday evening, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. The program will be presented by Dr. Hugh Dussek on “The American Revolution in the Carolinas.” He will discuss the history of immigration to the colonial back country of the Carolinas and the American Revolution.

Originally from London, England, Dussek holds an undergraduate degree from the University of the State of New York; a master’s degree in the humanities from California State University, Dominguez Hills; and a doctoral degree in history from Union Institute & University in Cincinnati, Ohio.

He is the division director for the Behavioral & Social Sciences Division at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) in Charlotte. Dussek also teaches courses on world civilizations, American history and local history.

Dussuk has made presentations on the American colonies, the American Revolution and local history for CPCC’s “Trail of History” television series and for “American History TV” on C-Span 3.

The meeting will be held in the Messinger Room (accessible by elevator). Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, September through June. The museum is at 202 N. Main St. Guests to the program should enter through the rear entrance.

A roundtable format will allow for a 30- to 45-minute presentation, followed by a question and answer period. The Rowan History Club is open to all persons interested in the history of Rowan County. There are no dues or admission fees, and refreshments are served.
