Lunch & Learn: The Treason of Betsy Ross

Wednesday, May 1, 2024
10am

Join us as author Wendy Long Stanley presents the subject of her newest book – Betsy Ross. The audience will travel through the well-known streets of historic Philadelphia, down some of its seedier alleyways, into taverns, workrooms, residences, and houses of worship as Stanley paints a picture of Betsy’s environment during the few years leading up to the Revolution. Betsy’s Quaker family, her militia-member husband, Loyalist friends, and the church clergy all have different reactions to the events which led to revolt, leaving Betsy to navigate these turbulent times and figure out her place in them.

Wendy Long Stanley is a former Horsham resident and her first book, The Power to Deny, featured our very own Elizabeth Graeme Fergusson. Learn more about Wendy and her books at https://www.wendystanley.com

Enjoy a continental breakfast, lecture, and a lunch buffet. Tours of the historic Keith House will also be available after lunch.
