History Majors Re-examine American Revolution

History majors at Canisius are working alongside municipal and academic historians across New York State to examine the legacy of the American Revolution ahead of the nation’s 250th anniversary. 

The six Canisius students— Devon Hayes, Claire Januchowski ’24, Joe Manna ’25, Ben McEwen ’25, Kaitlin O’Meara ’26, and Mitchell Popovski ’25—are  all recipients of a Gardiner Foundation Semiquincentennial Student Fellowship.  They are working with historians in Erie County, Ishua Valley, Java, and the towns of Nassau, Nelliston and Otto.  Erie County Historian and Canisius history alumnus C. Douglas Kohler ’88, MSEd ’90 is one of the cooperating municipal historians.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Canisius history students to receive hands-on experience in their major,” says Thomas A. Chambers, PhD, dean of the College of Arts & Sciences.  “The American Revolution means different things to different people and so students are collaborating with the archives of municipal historians and regional historical societies to better understand and uncover the larger story and legacies of the American Revolution.”
