Dr. Christopher J. Smith joined the staff of Liberty University in January of 2012. His research and teaching interests are primarily focused on the era of the Atlantic World Revolutions of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, but also cover areas as diverse as Ancient Greece and Rome and the American West. Dr. Smith challenges students to place historical personages and events within the broad context of history, so as to obtain a deeper understanding of how the current era developed out of the past.
Dr. Smith has taught at the college level since 2002. He is currently developing his doctoral dissertation, “American Rebels: Soldier Protest in the Early American Military, 1756-1763” for publication. He is also active in the East Texas Historical Association, having presented papers on the history of his alma mater, Texas A&M University.
Dr. Smith and his wife, Margaret, have been married since 2006 and are members of Rivermont Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Lynchburg.
