Author’s Talk – The Boston Massacre: A Family History
Tue Apr 7, 6:30pm–7:30pm
Presented by: Anderson House & The American Revolution Institute
Tickets · Free!
Serena Zabin, professor of history and director of the American studies program at Carleton College, discusses and signs copies of her new book on the personal and political conflicts that erupted in the Boston Massacre. Following the British troops dispatched from Ireland to Boston in 1768 to suppress colonial unrest, Dr. Zabin has uncovered the forgotten stories of the many regimental wives and children who accompanied these armies and who became neighbors to the colonists in Boston. When soldiers shot unarmed citizens in the street, it was these intensely human, now broken bonds that fueled what quickly became a bitterly fought American Revolution.
The talk will last approximately 45 minutes, followed by a book signing and refreshments. Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event. Registration is required for this free event.
