Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Alan Taylor will explore the era in which Louisiana became a state when he appears as part of Louisiana Tech University’s “Louisiana@200: A Bicentennial Lecture Series,” commemorating the 200th anniversary of Louisiana statehood in 1812.

Taylor will speak on two separate occasions. The first is “The Slave War of 1812: Runaways and the Royal Navy” at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Lincoln Parish Library.

Additionally, Taylor will lecture on the “Narratives of Freedom and Slavery in the War of 1812,” at 10:30 a.m. Friday, at Wyly Tower Auditorium.
