EXTRA: Radio Interviews This Week

I’m scheduled to do two radio interviews this week.

In the hour after midnight on Tuesday morning, I’ll speak to Bradley Jay at WBZ, Boston’s 1030 AM. Our topic will be Henry Knox’s expedition to the Lake Champlain fortifications to collect heavy artillery for the Continental lines around Boston.

On Friday morning, 3 January, in the 10:00 hour I’ll represent the Journal of the American Revolution on the “Revolution Road” segment of the Dave Nemo Show on Sirius/XM146. We’ll discuss the events of 1770, which include non-importation, the Seider killing, the Boston Massacre, Boston’s second tar-and-feathering, a General Court session in Cambridge, and the four Boston Massacre trials.
