Join us for a night out at The Museum of the American Revolution!

We will be attending a reading from the Revolution Speaker Series with Dr. Mary Beth Norton.

Author and historian, Dr. Norton joins the Museum for a special presentation titled, “Gender and American Resistance to British Authority, 1765-1775: A Reassessment,” as part of the Museum's Read the Revolution Speaker Series.

Drawing on her award-winning books, "1774: The Long Year of Revolution" and "Liberty’s Daughters: The Revolutionary Experience of American Women, 1750-1800," Norton will reflect on the advances of gender that have appeared since "Liberty’s Daughters" was first published in 1980, based on her own additional research and that of other historians.

She will deal with questions about men’s and women’s involvement in pre-revolutionary politics in the context of contemporary definitions of masculinity and femininity.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for guests to see a featured artifact from the Museum collection. 

This event is open to Walnut Club members and guests interested in learning more about our organization.

Guests will enjoy refreshments at a cash bar, and have opportunities to purchase signed copies of the featured books.

There is no cost to attend for Walnut Club members. (Fees covered by The Walnut Club.) Non-member tickets are $22.00.
