“Governor Denison & William Smith O’Brien – A Clash of Cultures” was presented by Professor Richard Davis.

The talk was the first of the Coal River Valley Historical Society’s history activities for 2013-14.

 

The event was introduced by ABC Radio’s Chris Wisbey and is to be followed by a series of talks and excursions in 2014 aimed at providing CRVHS members and others with the opportunity to expand their already considerable knowledge of Tasmanian history.
