“George D. Prentice and Bloody Monday: Scoundrel? Or Scapegoat?”

“George D. Prentice and Bloody Monday: Scoundrel? Or Scapegoat?”  (Program)
1:00 pm
At Your Home on Your Computer
Sep 08, 2020             Zoom Program:
Presented by James Prichard
 
George D. Prentice and Bloody Monday: Scoundrel? Or Scapegoat?
 
The recent removal of the George D. Prentice statue from public display capped over 163 years of controversy. The influential editor of the Louisville Daily Journal has long been condemned for his anti-Catholic, anti-immigrant editorials that many believe sparked the tragic “Bloody Monday” riot of 1855.
 
While several historians have absolved Prentice of total blame for the tragedy, he remains one of Louisville’s foremost villains in the public mind. This talk brings a fresh perspective to “Bloody Monday”, as well as a closer look regarding Prentice’s role in the tragedy. At the conclusion the audience will have the opportunity to judge – was Prentice a scoundrel? Or a scapegoat?
 
James Prichard is a Manuscript Cataloger at The Filson Historical Society. He received his B.A. and M.A. from Wright State University. He is the author of Embattled Capital: Frankfort, Kentucky in the Civil War.
