The Story of Mr. Thomas Carney – A Maryland Patriot of the American Revolutionary War

February 16, 2022
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

As a 50-year-old veteran, Mr. Carney tells his story in reflection, beginning with his family farming on the Eastern Shore, and proceeding with his odyssey as an enlisted serviceman fighting through an array of battles during the course of the War. This is a narrative that gives a rare glimpse into the life & times of the Revolutionary War through the lens, and military record, of an actual free black Maryland hero. As ‘free blacks’, Mr. Carney and his family serve as archetypes, representing the heritage, perspective, and universal aspirations of their community in a pivotal American period.

This program is targeted to ages 12 and older.

Registration for this event will be open from February 2, 2022 @ 10:00am to February 16, 2022 @ 6:00pm.
