On the night of April 18th, 1775 riders rode the Massachusetts countryside warning that British soldiers were marching to destroy stores of weapons and arrest local revolutionary leaders. 24 hours later, the exhausted and demoralized column stumbled back into Boston, and a war had begun that would last the next eight years and end in the birth of a new nation.

This conversation will take an in-depth look at those 24 hours and the people, places, and events that made them so memorable. Learn about both the pivotal historical events of that day and the foundational American mythology that grew out of it. Led by an expert on the American Revolution, Ben Rubin, this interactive seminar will explore the first battle of the war and the moment the American Revolution transformed from a protest movement into armed conflict. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased awareness of the chaotic origins of America's founding conflict.

Ben Rubin holds a bachelor's degree from Hanover College, a Master's from Western Carolina University, and is completing his Ph.D. at Drew University. He is also a graduate of the Cornell School of Criticism and Theory at Cornell University. His work has been published in the Journal of Backcountry Studies and in Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution. In addition to academic experience, Ben worked as a docent at the Biltmore House in Asheville, and as a whitewater raft guide on the Nantahala River.

This conversation is suitable for all ages

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.
