Between the 1760s and 1800s, Americans stopped thinking of the British past as their own history and created a new historical tradition that would form the foundation of what future generations would think of as “American history.”
Michael Hattem’s book Past and Prologue: Politics and Memory in the American Revolution (Yale Univ. Press, 2020) looks at this time, and examines the critical role it played in the development of the nation.
Fraunces Tavern Museum will host “The American Revolution and the Creation of American History,” a virtual lecture with Michael Hattem on Thursday, April 1st.
This lecture will begin at 6:30 pm and will be held via Zoom. Registration is free for Museum members, $5 for the general public. For more information or to register, visit the Fraunces Tavern Museum website.
