Thursday February 25, 2021
7:00 PM

The Hunterdon County Historical Society will host a free virtual program on African-American patriot Jacob Francis, who fought alongside Continental soldiers during the American Revolution. Author and historian William “Larry” Kidder will discuss Francis’s life on Thursday, Feb. 25 at 7 p.m. via Zoom. To reserve a space, visit the historical society’s website at www.hunterdonhistory.org.

This program — titled The Revolutionary World of a Free Black Man: Jacob Francis, 1754-1836 — is based upon Kidder’s research for his forthcoming book-length biography of Jacob Francis to be published by Knox Press. Francis’s life reveals an important story of New Jersey and American history that is little known – how people who were neither enslaved nor white experienced the American Revolution and the early Republic period.
