Randall M. Miller

Randall M. Miller is a professor of history at St. Joseph’s College in Philadelphia. The author or editor of more than 20 books, Miller recently completed a book on Lincoln and leadership and another on the Northern home front during the Civil War.

A principal advocate for a new interpretation of “freedom” and “unfreedom” at Independence National Historical Park, Miller’s efforts helped to lead to a memorial commemorating the lives of the nine slaves who served at President George Washington’s house at Sixth and Market Streets in Philadelphia. According to Miller, the recognition of Washington’s slaves created a great teaching opportunity that illustrates the struggle to define and realize liberty in America.
