Historian Ryan Dearinger examines the moving frontiers of canal and railroad construction workers in the tumultuous years of American expansion, from the completion of the Erie Canal in 1825 to the joining of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads in 1869. He tells the story of the immigrants and Americans---the Irish, Chinese, Mormons, and native-born citizens---whose labor created the West's infrastructure and turned the nation's dream of a continental empire into a reality.<br><br>Please come join us for a reception and refreshemnts at 5:00PM in the Lang &amp; Lit lounge-room 106A followed by his lecture at 5:30PM in Lang &amp; Lit room 243.</p><p>Hope to see you all there!</p><p><a href="/history/sites/cts.cwu.edu.history/files/Dearninger%20Flyer%20-%204-13-17%20.pdf">Flyer</a></p></br></br></br></br>Coming Home to Centralhttps://www.cwu.edu/history/node/2617Wed, 05 Apr 2017 11:18:16<p>The College of Arts and Humanities Alumni Day is coming up on April 11th.
