“I am sorry to inform you that in this day’s engagement, we have been obliged to leave the enemy masters of the field.”

General George Washington, writing to Congress after the Battle of Brandywine, Sept. 11, 1777

All my lectures are Powerpoint presentations using old photos and current photography especially selected for that program.

This was the poster created for my free lecture on Kennett Township’s “Agricultural Roots: How We Grew.” The township’s Historical Commission came up with the theme, but I was able to custom-fit my previous lectures and adapt my knowledge of Chester County’s early farming practices to reflect that of Kennett Township. As the illustration suggests, Kennett was known for its mushrooms and florist industry, specifically carnations.
