Video: C-SPAN Segments Highlight Bowdoin’s Place in History

C-SPAN recently aired a special series of segments, “Augusta Weekend,” that included a trip to the College to highlight several people of historical significance who also have strong ties to Bowdoin.

The segments comprise interviews with Associate Professor of Africana Studies and English Tess Chakkalakal and George J. Mitchell Department of Special Collections & Archives Director Richard Lindemann, as they share insight into Harriet Beecher Stowe and her landmark novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin; U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Melville Fuller, of the Class of 1853; American Civil War hero General Oliver Otis Howard, of the Class of 1850; and former Senate Majority Leader (D-Maine) George Mitchell ’54. Below are the segments that aired on C-SPAN2′S Book TV and C-SPAN 3′s American History TV.


Bowdoin is preparing to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War with Alumni College programming. ”The Afterlife of the American Civil War,” a series scheduled August 8-11, 2013, will feature keynote speakers, talks by Bowdoin faculty and walking tours of historic Brunswick.
