Happy Hour with the Historian: Loyalists During the Revolution
June 15, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| $5.00
Join us for an evening happy hour on the lovely summer grounds of Graeme Park, and lecture on Loyalists during the American Revolution.
During the Revolution your neighbor may have been a Loyalist! Jack Washington will present some of these local Loyalists and their fate at the hands of their pro-Revolutionary neighbors.
He will also provide enlightenment on the attempts by General Howe during the occupation of Philadelphia in 1777-78 to recruit some of these disaffected persons into his military establishment.
Jack Washington is a long time Revolutionary War reenactor, volunteer and board member at Graeme Park, and Chair of the Cheltenham Township Historical Commission, which operates the 1682 Richard Wall House.
$5 admission (free admission for members). Cash bar. Details to follow.
