This course will look at how the years of former president Woodrow Wilson's childhood and adolescence in the turbulent times of Reconstruction shaped the man who would become such a consequential president of the Modern Era. When Woodrow Wilson was born in Staunton in 1856, the South had not yet experienced the Civil War, Emancipation, Reconstruction, or Jim Crow. By the time he died in 1924, the world had seen the Great War, radio, telegraph, and the League of Nations. President Wilson had a hand in bringing about some of the important developments of the 20th century.

Mark Peterson received a PhD in history, and worked as a college instructor for several years before becoming a rare book librarian. He currently works in the library and archives research center of the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library.
