Dr. Joseph Warren: Had he lived, the name of Washington might be obscure
Join the Atwood Museum on June 15th to hear the story of Dr. Joseph Warren, who once was one of the Revolutionary War’s most famous figures. It was Dr. Warren who sent Paul Revere out to warn everyone that the British were coming, and who helped unite the First Continental Congress. Janet Uhlar, author of Liberty’s Martyr: The Story of Dr. Joseph Warren, will explore the impact of Dr. Warren two days before the anniversary of the Battle of Bunker Hill when he lost his life. Make your reservations today for this virtual lecture!
Author, lecturer, and screenplay writer, Janet’s genre is rarely seen; and her passion for the American Revolution is evident. Janet firmly believes that when the private lives and unique personalities of historical figures are presented, and the dynamics between these characters brought out, history becomes much more than cold black print on a stark white page. History takes on a life of its own, with true flesh and blood individuals whose acts of courage, indifference, or cowardice shaped the world we live in today. This living history helps us relate to those who have gone before – offering inspiration, courage, and a sense of determination.
