9th Annual Conference of the American Revolution
March 18 - March 20
Our friends and Fort Plain Museum sponsors/supporters, America’s History LLC has announced their 9th annual Conference on the American Revolution. Bruce and Lynne Venter are both been very supportive of the Museum. Bruce is a Member of the Board of Trustees of the Museum and both are very generous with their time and resources. The Museum’s conference in June, would not be what it is today without their guidance.
Unfortunately, the pandemic has shut down their annual conference and this will be their first conference since 2019. This is great conference, after attending for your first time, you will be hooked. Please consider attending this event to show your support and help keep America’s History LLC alive and well.
