Virtual Author’s Talk – America’s First Veterans

January 13, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

BUY TICKETS

Executive Director Jack Warren discusses America’s First Veterans, the new book from the American Revolution Institute of the Society of the Cincinnati. Using eighty-five manuscripts, rare books, prints, broadsides, paintings and other artifacts, America’s First Veterans introduces the stories of the men—and some women—who bore arms in the Revolutionary War. The book follows their fate in the seventy years after the war’s end and traces the development of public sentiment that led to the first comprehensive military pensions in our history.

The talk will last approximately one hour on Zoom. Signed copies of the book are available for purchase online. Registration is required for this free event.

 

America’s First Veterans is published in conjunction with the exhibition America’s First Veterans, which is presented with the financial support of CACI, International.
