John Resch, professor emeritus of history at the University of New Hampshire at Manchester, discusses how the moral sentiment of gratitude, as expressed in the image of the suffering soldier, transformed the memory of the Revolutionary War and its veterans in the early American republic. This popular depiction legitimized the Continental Army as a republican institution, credited it with securing independence and led to the creation of pensions.

The talk will last approximately 45 minutes. Registration is required for this free event. 

This program accompanies our current exhibition, America’s First Veterans, on view through April 5, 2020.
