Ordinary People in Extraordinary Times
Dr. Sean Condon, Professor of History and Vice Provost at Merrimack College, will discuss how coming of the American Revolution impacted everyone in Massachusetts. This talk will examine some of the ways that men and women from different walks of life (farmers, laborers, merchants, and the enslaved) shaped and were shaped by the birth of the republic. Please register. This program was made possible by a grant from the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Before this program, or just if you want to learn more about the Revolutionary period, read excerpts from some fascinating primary source documents in the Revisiting the Founding Era reader.
