DescriptionIt is easy to assume that in times of crisis disparate groups across the country will abandoned their differences and band together for the good of the nation. But is national unity during a crisis automatic? In a lecture on September 24, 2014, Brendan Miniter, the director of historical scholarship at the George W. Bush Presidential Center, examines the historical record in the months surrounding 9/11 and offers insights into how the country went from a disputed election in November 2000 to a willingness to stand united in September 2001. The lecture will consider how principled leadership, a sense of national purpose, and policies that encouraged civic engagement might have helped unite the country. The lecture will compare the period surrounding 9/11 to other critical periods in American history when the country faced a crisis.
