Sons’ Speaker Series – June Lecture
“The Revolutionary War in Bucks and Montgomery Counties”
With Michael Jesberger
Date: Tuesday, June 13th, 2023
Time: 6pm Lecture with Reception to follow
We are excited to announce that historical re-enactor, lecturer and tour guide, Michael Jesberger will be presenting an informative program about the common soldiers who fought in the American Revolution, and the various incidents that took place in Bucks and Montgomery County and the surrounding Philadelphia region.
We may remember the 1776 crossing of the Delaware and the Valley Forge encampment as events that tested the mettle of the patriot forces, but the continental soldiers triumphed over scores of other hardships at places lesser known. In the fall of 1777, the Continental Army fought two key battles and marched hundreds of miles through all types of terrain and in all sorts of weather. Often deprived of food, sleep, and comfort, the soldiers deserve recognition for what they endured during this campaign for the cause of liberty. Join Mr. Jesberger for this lecture that includes images of Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery County area historic sites, maps, and eyewitness accounts of the participants bringing these seldom-celebrated events to life.
