Dr. Roger Smith, Ph.D., discussing "British East and West Florida 1763-1784"
Based on his award winner doctoral dissertation, Dr. Roger Smith shares newly recovered information concerning British intentions in the southern colonies during the American Revolution.
Dr. Smith received his Bachelor’s Degree in History in 2006, a Master’s Degree in American History in 2008, and a Ph.D. in Early American History and Atlantic World Studies, with a certificate of scholarship in Museum Studies, in 2011 – all from the University of Florida. His work on the American Revolution in the South has received the Aschoff Fellowship Dissertation Award and the Jack and Celia Proctor Award in Southern History. Dr. Smith’s new book, The Last Union Jack, discusses the little-told story of British intention and military activity in the southern colonies from 1775 – 1780, as recorded from a British perspective.
