Winter Lecture Series
"Samuel Wells and Luke Knowlton's Involvement with the British Secret Service/Northern Division
Even though things are quiet in Knowlton in January as far as the calendar of events goes there is a great winter lecture series being presented by the Brome County Historical Society featuring Historian Jim Manson. The Saturday lecture presentation focuses on the topic "Samuel Wells and Luke Knowlton's Involvement with the British Secret Service/Northern Division " where the fate of Vermont's loyalist population took a dramatic turn for the better after the 1780 rapprochement between Ira Allen and Luke Knowlton leading to an informal alliance between the defacto Vermont Government and prominent loyalists from Cumberland and Gloucester Counties. In exchange for supporting Vermont's bid for independence from New York, the loyalists were given a free hand to work against the Revolution. Now this is the type of stuff that can't be made up! Come hear for yourself the exciting details that make the history of The Eastern Townships such a fascinating subject! Presented by The Brome County Historical Society in the Old Court House, 15 St. Paul Road, Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Information: 450-243-6782
Winter Lecture Series
Reverend Charles Stewart and Frontier Religion in the Eastern Townships
Another Saturday night for those of you who prefer the meat and potatoes of history over an evening with Don Cherry at the rink. Another popular presentation with Historian Jim Manson who profiles "Reverend Charles Stewart and Frontier Religion in the Eastern Townships" Reverend Charles Stewart played an important role in the early religious life of the Eastern Townships but it was his evaluation of the region's American settlers after the War of 1812 that interested Lower Canada's political authorities. If you thought scandal and drama was limited to the Liberal Party this will provide much merriment and historical background of our region. Presented by The Brome County Historical Society in the Old Court House, 15 St. Paul Road, Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Information: 450-243-6782
