I became acquainted with Janet through the Maury County Historical Society. As the Vice President of Publications, I received an email from Janet adding additional information to our research on Skipwith Hall, one of Maury County's antebellum gems.
Janet has graciously agreed to be a guest blogger and will share her knowledge in a few posts over the next few weeks.
But first, a little about Janet....
JANET UHLARAuthor, lecturer, screenplay writer, Janet Uhlar’s genre is rarely seen. She presents biography through the living, breathing form of biographical fiction. The characters lived; the events occurred. The dialogue carries the stories. Janet firmly believes that when the private lives and unique personalities of historical figures are presented, and the dynamics between these characters brought out, history becomes much more than cold black print on a stark white page. History takes on a life of its own, with true flesh and blood individuals whose acts of courage, indifference, or cowardice shaped the world we live in today. This living history helps us relate to those who have gone before – offering inspiration, courage, and a sense of determination
Janet’s passion for her subject is evident. She has lectured extensively, to a wide variety of audiences -- from elementary school to college level; state historical societies; as well as state and national conferences pertaining to the American Revolution, including conferences held for those who teach history. Janet has spoken at national historical parks, and worked with documentary projects and museums.
Janet is on the board of trustees of the Nathanael Greene Homestead in Coventry, Rhode Island, and on the advisory boards of the Nathanael Greene Monument Foundation in RI, and the Mulberry Grove Foundation in Savannah, GA.
