The son of an American mother, Sir Winston delivered his first political address, in 1897, at Claverton Manor, now the home of the American Museum. Given the location of the lecture, it was very fitting that Sir Christopher spoke much of Churchill’s close ties with the United States of America, as well as stressing the importance of historical study in understanding present-day global politics.

Following the success of this event, we are delighted to share with you a podcast of Sir Christopher Meyer’s lecture.
