The Road to Concord: How Four Stolen Cannons Ignited the Revolutionary War

March 25, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Author J.L. Bell will offer an unique view of  the American War for Independence as he tells the little-known story about the Massachusetts Patriots’ efforts, from September 1774 on, to build an artillery force, and General Thomas Gage’s attempts to thwart that insurgency.

Mr. Bell is fascinated with the story of the American Revolution in New England. Along with his book, The Road to Concord: How Four Stolen Cannons Ignited the Revolutionary War, he has published several scholarly papers and served as a consultant for an episode of History Detectives. 

Autographed copies of Mr. Bell’s book will be available for sale.
