The Fraunces Tavern Museum will host “American Rebels: How the Hancock, Adams, and Quincy Families Fanned the Flames of Revolution,” a virtual lecture looking at the connections between leading families of the American Revolution on Thursday, November 11th.
In this lecture, Nina Sankovitch will explore the role played by such figures as John Hancock, John Adams and Abigail Smith (Adams), Josiah Quincy Junior and Dorothy Quincy (Hancock) in sparking the flames of dissent and rebellion that would lead to the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
By focusing in on Braintree, Massachusetts, and these three prominent families of the village, Sankovitch will demonstrate how the desire for independence cut across class lines, binding people together as they pursued commonly held goals of opportunity, liberty, and stability.
This lecture will begin at 6:30 pm and will take place via Zoom. For more information or to register, click here.
