Historic Lectures at the Old Barracks Museum

Friday December 28, 2018
12:00 PM

On Friday, December 28 at 12 PM, David Niescior, Historic Interpreter of the Old Barracks Museum, will present "'Leveling all Distinctions': The Philadelphia Associators and the Making of Revolution". This presentation discusses how The Philadelphia Associators quickly became the most radical revolutionaries in the American forces during the Revolutionary War. Drawn from the "lower sort", they sought radical change which stretched the boundaries of what many above them thought the Revolution could - or should - accomplish.

 

On Friday, December 28 at 1:30 PM, Leon Brooks Sr. will present "Black Marbleheaders on The Delaware" and Algernon Ward, Jr. will present "We Were There: African Americans at The Battle of Trenton". These presentations feature the history of how African American servicemen were crucial to the victory of the Battle of Trenton.

 

On Friday, December 28 at 3 PM, Tim Stollery will present "John Honeyman, Washingtons's Spy: Unsung Hero or Urban Legend?" This presentation features the story of John Honeyman, the Griggstown, New Jersey butcher and cattle dealer who, according to legend, became a spy for General George Washington in the months leading up to the game-changing victory in the First Battle of Trenton. This presentation will lay out the genesis of the story, explore the findings on each side of the Honeyman mystery, and ultimately invite attendees to join in the search for more primary evidence that can support or debunk the legend of Washington's spy at Trenton.

In this musical based on the beloved Bing Crosby/Fred Astaire film, Jim Hardy leaves behind the hustle and bustle of showbiz for a quiet life on a Connecticut farm.

Fresh from a Broadway run, this heartwarming, toe-tapping production features more than 20 classic songs from the Berlin catalog, including “Easter Parade,” “Cheek to Cheek,” “Steppin’ Out with My Baby,” and “White Christmas.”
