Come hear Vermont author Rick Winston, in a special Franklin County presentation and discussion of his new book: Red Scare in the Green Mountains: Vermont in the McCarthy Era 1946-1960.
What happened in neighboring Vermont when the anti-Communist fear known as the “Red Scare” swept the country? Author Rick Winston explores some forgotten history as we see how a small, rural “rock-ribbed Republican” state with a historically libertarian streak handled the hysteria of the time.
Presented with the Franklin County Continuing the Political Revolution (FCCPR)
