We continue our Historical Dinner Series on Tuesday, March 17, with focus on ‘The Things They Carried’.
Our speaker, Chris Reardon, will talk about the items of kit and equipment carried by both civilians and the military when in the field during the period 1690-1790. The focus will be on the items you would likely encounter in the Delaware and Hudson Valleys.
Using historic (and a few modern) images, as well as photos of historic and reproduced artifacts, Chris will discuss the hundred year evolution of the personal weapons and equipment carried by hunters, travelers, militia, Continental soldiers, and native Americans in the focus area. Chris will also bring some of his extensive collection for your examination.
During the event, we’ll be pouring Yards Brewing Company’s Thomas Jefferson Golden Ale and George Washington Porter.
Buffet Dinner will begin at 5:30 p.m. – menu coming soon. We will then go to the upstairs room for the lecture, then Q&A. Once we are done, we go back downstairs for complimentary coffee and mini desserts.
We also have some special Black Powder Tavern prizes that will be given out to lucky winners after the lecture is over. You must be present with the winning ticket in order to win.
A Q&A session will follow with complimentary coffee and mini desserts.
The price is $45 (tax & gratuity included), seating is limited and reservations are required. Call (610) 293-9333 to book your spot with us today.
