Dr. James Finck will give a presentation on his new book, Divided Loyalties: Kentucky’s Struggle for Armed Neutrality beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 20 in room 124 of Davis Hall on USAO’s campus. The presentation will be followed by a book signing in the Nesbitt Gallery.

In a nation torn apart by secession and the Civil War, Kentucky found itself in an unenviable position.

“Kentucky was a slave-holding state, deeply immersed in the culture of the South and yet, it had strong financial interests that were dependent on its continued interaction with the Union,” says Dr. James Finck, assistant professor of American history.

Finck explores Kentucky’s unique position in his latest book, Divided Loyalties: Kentucky’s Struggle for Armed Neutrality in the Civil War. Finck is scheduled to deliver a presentation on his book beginning at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 20 in room 124 of Davis Hall.
