Reason to Revolution Virtual Book Launch - Sir James McGrigor
Tuesday 18th May 2021
In two linked events over successive Tuesdays, From Reason to Revolution authors Robert Griffith and Tom Scotland will draw upon their recent new publications to shed light on two overlooked figures of the Peninsular War.
At 7pm (British Summer Time) on 18 May Tom Scotland will talk about Sir James McGrigor, subject of his recently-published biographical study. Superintendent of medical matters in Wellington’s army during the latter part of the Peninsular War, McGrigor who oversaw a substantial and effective reform of medical and hospital arrangements. As Tom will explain, however, McGrigor's Peninsular service was just one part of a lengthy career that took this product of the Scottish Enlightenment to Flanders, the West Indies, India, Egypt, and Walcheren.
This free talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session hosted by series editor Andrew Bamford, and attendees will have access to an exclusive code providing a discount off the book in question.
This event will be hosted using the web-based Demio platform, for which no special downloads are required.
