Events for Thursday November 5, 2020

As a City on a Hill: The Story of a Phrase, a Myth, and American Nationalism, 55-Plus Club of Princeton

Thursday November 5, 2020
10:00 AM

Speaker: Daniel T. Rodgers, Henry Charles Lea Professor of History Emeritus at Princeton University

This talk, based on a Princeton University Press book released in paperback this fall, tells the story of that phrase and document, from their original intentions, through their centuries' long disappearance, their unexpected twentieth-century rediscovery, to their modern place in the formulas of American nationalism. The talk will describe the ways in which a text, barely known in its day, was lost, rediscovered, and reimagined, long after the fact, as foundational to the nation's creed and story.

Instructions on how to join a meeting are sent to everyone on our mailing list. If you are not on the mailing list, you may join by emailing Gil Gordon - gil@gilgordon.com and ask to be placed on the list.

Develop your skills and knowledge as a naturalist through our online Naturalist Explorations programs with Education Director Jeff Hoagland and Watershed Education Intern, Anna Stunkel!

7:00 PM

Sourland Mountain and American Indians: A Hidden Story with Ian Burrow

American Indians have been in the Sourlands for at least 8000 years, but it can seem as if they left little evidence of their life here. Recent re-examination of artifact collections, new historical research, and archaeological surveys on the Mountain itself are beginning to change that picture. Local archaeologist and historian Ian Burrow will talk about what we know and don't know, about Indigenous people on and around the Mountain. If you have Indian artifacts you'd like to know more about, bring them to the Zoom meeting! Sign up via  http://tiny.cc/SC2020Train
