HAVERHILL, MA —“Loyalist or Patriot: The American Revolution in Haverhill” will be presented for children (age 7 and up) on Tues., January 14, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Buttonwoods Museum in Haverhill.
In the decade before the American Revolution, taxes, boycotts, and trade embargoes changed the way Haverhill’s citizens felt about “Mother England.” Using museum collections and reproduction objects, students will experience life during this turbulent time by examining the lives of farming families, loyalists like Colonel Richard Saltonstall, and patriots such as General James Brickett. Haverhill’s part in the Battle of Bunker Hill and the role of women in the Revolution are included in this program.
The cost is $5.00; caregivers are free. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org by January 9.
Buttonwoods Museum is located at 240 Water Street in Haverhill, MA. For more information, call 978-374-4626.
