The J.A.R.’s RevWar Schmoozer will take place on Friday, 8 May, at The Point, 147 Hanover Street in Boston. That upstairs space is reserved from 4:30 to 7:30 P.M. Everyone involved in studying and interpreting the history of the Revolutionary War—historians, tour guides, museum professionals, N.P.S. rangers, publishing personnel, reenactors, students, genealogists, enthusiasts, and more—will be welcome. There will be a cash bar and plenty of conversation.
The next day, up to forty lucky people will have a special viewing of the new “We Are One: Mapping America’s Road from Revolution to Independence” exhibit at the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center in the Boston Public Library. There are still a few spaces open for that event; click here for more details and to reserve a space.
