Historian and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Andrew Roberts joined the Museum of the American Revolution in February 2022 for a talk on his latest book, The Last King of America: The Misunderstood Reign of George III. The Last King of America reexamines King George III and offers a nuanced and fascinating view of a controversial monarch often dismissed as a pompous buffoon or villain. Following the lecture Museum President & CEO Dr. R. Scott Stephenson joined the discussion to host a live Q&A with the live audience.
