Sieh discussed his work bringing Asian and Asian American history to the forefront and his ongoing research on the role Asian people played in the American Revolution.
To dive deeper, read Sieh's guest blog post as he explores how the story of Charles Peters provides a fascinating window into the contributions made by Asian people to the American Revolution.
