The China Trade
March 21 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Rescheduled from spring 2020, this Jamaica Plain Historical Society talk will now be held virtually.
At a moment when our country has been facing great divisions, 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. This talk will be virtual and we ask that you please pre-register so that we can send you the link and other event details: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-china-trade-tickets-133127843965
