American Rebels: How the Hancock, Adams, and Quincy Families Fanned the Flames of Revolution
In this lecture, Nina Sankovitch will explore the intimate connections between leading families of the American Revolution: the Hancock, Adams, and Quincy families. Together, the families witnessed the horrors of the Boston Massacre, the Battles of Lexington and Concord, and Bunker Hill; the trials and tribulations of the Siege of Boston; meetings of the Continental Congress; transatlantic missions for peace and abysmal failures; and the final steps that led to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This lecture explores how the desire for independence cut across class lines, binding people together as well as dividing them as they pursued commonly held goals of opportunity, liberty, and stability.
This lecture will take place via Zoom. Registration ends at 5:30pm on the day of the lecture.
Venue: Fraunces Tavern Museum
54 Pearl Street, 2nd Fl
