Civil War Lecture: General Joseph Warren Revere: The Gothic Saga of Paul Revere's Grandson


Tuesday April 22, 2014
7:00 PM
Please join William Chemerka, an award winning educator, lecturer and writer as he details the life of Paul Revere's grandson.

Joseph Warren Revere, a grandson of the legendary Paul Revere, served in the U.S. Navy; circumnavigated the globe; raised the first American flag in Sonoma, California during the Mexican War; battled pirates, sharks, and Indians; searched for gold; had a scandalous affair; joined the Union Army and received a court-martial for his actions at the Battle of Chancellorsville during the Civil War. And then he began the fight of his life.

This is the second of two lectures this winter commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.

There will also be an exhibit in the second level F. M. Kirby Gallery from March 10 - May 11, 2014 titled "Their Memory Shall Never Fade: Morris County and the Civil War.” The exhibit showcases items from the History Center’s collection of papers, photographs and other primary sources tied into the American conflict as well as items borrowed from collectors and enthusiasts. An exhibition reception, including a meet and greet with the exhibition’s curators, will be held on Thursday, March 13. Special previews of the exhibit will be available on the program dates.
