For Women’s History Month (in March 2019), the Lehigh Valley American Revolution Round Table is pleased to have the noted historian, author and American Revolutionary War scholar Don N. Hagist deliver a program entitled: “Sober Industrious Women-Wives of British Soldiers and Their Role in the Army” on Wednesday Evening, March 20th, 6:30pm. Using his vast personally researched materials on America’s War for Independence, Hagist, the managing editor of the Journal of the American Revolution, will discuss the topic of when British regiments were deployed in 18th century North America. This talk will explain the rationale for having family members accompany the army, the many diverse roles they played, and the challenges they faced.
Free parking is available across from the building. The programs are open to all; free for current members of the LVARRT and a requested $6 donation by others (admission is free if an individual joins at the event(s) where a special premium gift will be presented). Seating is limited.
