Wednesday, Jan. 17th, 7pm
In Massachusetts we often think of the Revolution through the lens of the 18th of April, Bunker Hill and the Siege of Boston. Historian Beth Bower will discuss Captain Samuel Page’s Company, a diverse group of soldiers from Danvers and Beverly, who fought at Ticonderoga, Hubbardston, Bennington and Saratoga. The company wintered at Valley Forge in Fall of 1777 to the spring of 1778. They served at the battle of Monmouth before moving to West Point to guard the Hudson River until 1781. Learn about their service and their lives after the war.
