Lehigh Valley American Revolution Round Table (LVARRT) Meeting

January 15, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

$6
The Lehigh Valley American Revolution Round Table (LVARRT) is pleased to announce that its president & founder, Andrew A. Zellers-Frederick, will speak at its next meeting on *Wednesday Evening, January 15th, 6:30 PM.  The program, open both to members and the general public, is entitled: The Hessians at Trenton who Escaped Washington’s Christmas Day Net. Although the majority of the British Crown’s 1,400 Trenton garrison were killed, wounded or captured in Washington’s brilliant Christmas Day attack, that many credit with saving the American Revolution, nearly 400 German and British troops escaped the trap to fight another day. This interesting program will discuss these soldiers who retreated as individuals or units.  

“The organization is thrilled to have Andrew Zellers-Frederick once again speak to us on a topic he is very familiar from his studies and publications,” said one board member. 

“This distinguished historian and museum/historic site professional is the author of many articles and other publications on the American Revolution.  We are pleased that he will share his wealth of knowledge with our organization.”  His specialty in American history (especially on the Colonial, Revolution War & Early Federal Periods) is due to his BA in History with honors from Temple University; a MA in History from La Salle University with honors (holding the title of being the first graduate student to professionally publish an academic article prior to graduation); and a Certificate Degree from Bucks County Community College in Historic Preservation.  Several of Zellers-Frederick’s most recent articles on the American Revolution are available to read on the website of the Journal of the American Revolution.    

The program will be conducted in room #107 of Lafayette  University’s Oechsle Center for Global Affairs in Easton located on campus at 55 South College Drive.  The building is handicap accessible with convenient free parking located directed across the campus roadway from the building.   The program is free for current members and a requested $6.00 donation to assist with covering expenses is requested from each guest 

*We will be having light refreshments that evening, so, if you could please RSVP to help us have enough for everyone.

We trust that many of our members will attend this program as well as new individuals just being introduced to our organization.  The Board of Directors hopes that many will join our non-profit group, regardless of any previous background in history, to learn about our nation’s founding and to benefit from the vast array of learned speakers that come to our meetings.  We regularly meet on the third Wednesday of every other month thanks to the support of Lafayette University.
