Join us for a special discussion with acclaimed historian Robert Gross, author of the book Minutemen and Their World. Bob has been serving as a consulting scholar for our upcoming exhibition on April 19, 1775 in Arlington and will share some of what our research has taught us so far including that "Neither Lexington Green nor the North Bridge in Concord was the principal theater of war. That lay along the battle road passing through Menotomy." Visitors may also enjoy a display of objects and images from our collection inspired by or made from the natural world. Come learn about the connections between fashion and conservation and how mass production often emulated natural materials.
