The Pilgrims are Here – The British are Coming 1620-1775

Lecturer: Barry A. Greenlaw

In 1620 the Pilgrims arrived in America. In 1775 the American Revolution began at Lexington and Concord. Next year (2020) is the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ landing on Plymouth Rock. Five years later (2025) is the 250th anniversary of the beginning of the Revolutionary War and of our country’s struggle for independence. Thus looking forward to these two major anniversaries, this course will consider the 155 years of settlement, growth, conflict, and regional rivalry in the American Colonies between these two events – nationally, internationally, politically and culturally. An all-encompassing look at the complex and fascinating origins of the United States of America

THE PILGRIMS ARE HERE – THE BRITISH ARE COMING is an 8-week course to be presented 3 times each week, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, from Sept. 24-25 through November 19-20, 2019 (there will be a one-week break Oct. 15-16). Tuesday and Wednesday morning classes will be held from 9:30-11:30 a.m.; Tuesday evening classes from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
