1774: The Long Year of Revolution
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Presented by Mary Beth Norton*
The 16 months from the Boston Tea Party to the Battles of Lexington and Concord changed the course of American history. In this lecture, Mary Beth Norton will explore what is known as the "long year" of the American Revolution, a time when once-loyal colonists began their discordant "discussions," leading to the acceptance of the inevitability of a war against the British Empire.
This lecture will take place via Zoom. Registration ends at 3:30pm on the day of the lecture. Please select February 4 on the calendar to purchase your ticket.
Venue: Fraunces Tavern Museum
54 Pearl Street
