Joseph Warren and the Tools to Ignite the Revolution

Join Revolutionary Spaces to witness a rediscovered artifact and learn about its legacy. Collections Manager Lori Erickson will exhibit a recently uncovered powder horn from Joseph Warren’s home – known to many as the Grandfather of the Revolution. Following Ms. Erickson’s presentation of the object, scholars will explore the history of powder horns and Joseph Warren’s legacy – at the intersection of medicine and military. Guests include preeminent Warren scholar and author of Founding Martyr: The Life and Death of Dr. Joseph Warren, the American Revolution’s Lost Hero Christian Di Spigna. Don’t miss your opportunity to see this treasure up close!

This program is in-person and will be held in the Council Chamber of the Old State House.
