Lectures by Jay Greene
Sponsored by the St. Helena and Napa County Historical Societies

In the late eighteenth century, British colonists, living in a narrow strip of land along the Atlantic seaboard, fought for freedom from British rule. No one then could have imagined how huge the United States would soon become. In this eight-part series, Jay Greene will help us understand the pivotal events in our country’s history that made possible the settlement of the vast land spreading all the way to the Pacific. To appreciate the history of where we live today, we need to understand the political and social movements of the past.

Having graduated from college with honors in history, Jay Greene continues to research topics of historical interest, including the exciting history of how the United States grew from the East Coast all the way to the West Coast––in a relatively short period of time. He lives in St. Helena.
