The Marblehead Museum is featuring a couple of lectures on Revolutionary topics this month.
On Wednesday, 10 March, clothing historians Matthew Brenckle and Victoria Rebal Brenckle will speak on “What They Wore: Soldiers and Camp Followers in Glover’s Regiment, 1775”:
How did Marblehead’s seafaring soldiers and landside laborers—the men of [Col. John] Glover’s Regiment—dress as they prepared for war in 1775? What did their attire say about who they and their families were as citizens?This session starts at 7:30 P.M. It looks like it’s free to the public, and there will even be refreshments. Call 781-631-1768 for reservations.
On Thursday, 18 March, Don Doliber will trace “The History of Masons in Marblehead.” Admission to this talk is listed as $15, or $10 for museum members. It is in conjunction with the museum’s current exhibit on “Masons in Colonial Marblehead,” which features the punchbowl shown here.
