Hadley-Luzerne Historical Society’s Speaker Series: “The American Revolution in the Adirondacks”
September 14, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Marie D.A. Williams, author, blogger, and local historian, will be at Hadley Town Hall for this addition to the Hadley-Luzerne Historical Society’s Speaker Series: “‘The American Revolution in the Adirondacks’ | While the people of the Adirondacks tended to either be loyalists or apathetic to either side, British General Burgoyne’s ventures leading his armies down from Canada quickly changed all that in 1777. In an effort to capture what we now know as New York State, Burgoyne’s defeat at Saratoga followed the series of raids throughout the region to interrupt supply lines and terrorize the people of the local community. These wilderness raids are the focus of Marie Williams’ studies. She will reveal the gumption local populations had to defend their rights and freedoms.”
