Postponed: The China Trade

April 26 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

This event has been postponed. The Arnold Arboretum has cancelled all events through April. A new date for this event is being rescheduled for the fall.

At a moment when our country seems especially divided, Prof. Dane Morrison of Salem State University will discuss how Americans forged a national identity after the War of Independence. After breaking free from British rule, American identity had more to do with sailing to the East than trekking into the West.  Private  journals, letters, ships’ logs, memoirs, and newspaper accounts help trace America’s earliest encounters on a global stage. This talk will particularly focus on the travels of the Forbes family, from Jamaica Plain to China.

Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
