Dr. Way is on the faculty at UT, where he earned his Ph.D. His current position is split between the departments of History and French. Bruce's interest in the War of 1812 comes from both his background as a U.S. 19th-Century generalist and his work in Canadian Studies. He helped organize an 1812 speakers series at Monroe County Community College while on staff there, and continues to be involved in the War of 1812 by participating in the Great Lakes War of 1812 Bicentennial Collaborative.

Dr. Brunsman received his PhD from Princeton University in 2004 and an M.A. from the same institution in 2000. He has written and presented extensively on 18th and early 19th century topics. Among Dr. Brunsman's works are "Everyday Escapes: The Art of Evading the British Press Gang”; "American Colonies: Virginia Company," a chapter in The Reader's Guide to British History; and the soon to be published "Impressment" and "Naval Desertion," in The Encyclopedia of North American Colonial Warfare to 1775 and” The Evil Necessity: British Naval Impressment in the Eighteenth-Century Atlantic World.” For more information please call 800-283-8916 or visit www.fortmeigs.org.
