(Virtual) history uncovered Wednesday May 17

by Amie Rukenstein

An online presentation hosted by the Mercer County Library System!

Remember back in February we told you about how, in a dusty basement, a long-forgotten mural depicting Washington’s troops crossing the Delaware was rediscovered by a local historian?

On Wednesday, accompany Ewing Historian Pat Millen and Annette Earling, Executive Director of the Washington Crossing Park Association behind the scenes to learn more about this amazing discovery. Among lots of other things, Millen and Earling will describe the detective work that was involved – how did Millen track it down, how is Taylor Pork Roll part of the story, and and what’s next for this exciting artwork?

Registration with an email is required so the Library can send you a link to connect through GoToMeeting. You will receive the link approximately 24 hours before the program.
