Prof. Jeremy Black Lectures in Lexington, 28 March

This Friday, 28 March, at 8:00 P.M., the Lexington Historical Society is hosting a free lecture at its Lexington Depot site by British military historian Jeremy Black. His topic will be “Could the British Have Won the American War of Independence?” The lecture description says:

Professor Black will examine established interpretations of the American Revolution, placing the conflict in the context of British and American military history.
The Depot is near the center of Lexington, just off Massachusetts Avenue. The society promises ample parking, dessert, and coffee.

It looks like Prof. Black may be in town to consult with the society on its plan to reinterpret Munroe Tavern (shown below) as a “Museum of the British” in Lexington. That sounds like an interesting enterprise.
