Book David Dixon to Speak

David T. Dixon likes nothing better than speaking to historical societies, libraries, museums, and conferences across the country. Dave uncovers little-known historical figures with compelling stories and presents them in a lively, engaging style.

Julie Scoskie of Filson Historical Society says: “One of our long-term members and university professor called your presentation ‘theatrical’ and said it was perhaps the best program he had attended.”

David Mowery of the Cincinnati Civil War Round Table says: “Your presentation on Anderson was one of the best delivered talks I’ve experienced. You are well-spoken and dynamic, which really helps convey the message.”

Saria Sweeney of the Old Colony History Museum says: “The lecture and response following was fantastic. One of our former board members and long-time friend of the museum said it was the best he had ever been to. Thank you so much for a great event and please keep us in mind for your next book tour. We would love to have you back.”

Michael Harris of the Scottsdale Civil War Round Table says: “Your presentation was fabulous.”
