Talk with Jessica Sheets: Family Discover in the Revolutionary War
- Dates: June 11, 2020
- Location: via Zoom
- Time: 6:30 PM
Join Dr. Jessica Sheets for a virtual talk on her recently completed dissertation. The Revolutionary War divided families just as the Civil War did, but that perspective of the Revolutionary era is not as commonly known. During this talk, Dr. Sheets, Research Historian at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, will reveal the political opinions and personal thoughts of members of a divided family from Maryland, the Tilghmans. Would they permanently split, or would they overcome their political disagreements?
This talk will be held virtually. To register and receive a link to join please sign up here.
