Inside the Vault: Lucy Knox: Loyalist’s daughter, Patriot’s wife, and Witness to the American Revolution
Lucy Knox: Loyalist’s daughter, Patriot’s wife, and Witness to the American Revolution
During the siege of Boston in 1775, 19-year-old Lucy Knox gave up everything she knew and left Boston with her husband’s sword hidden in her clothes. She would never see her parents or siblings again. Lucy’s letters to her husband, Henry Knox, provide valuable eyewitness testimony to the experience of Americans during the Revolutionary War. Join us on March 4, 2021, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET (4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. PT) as we examine Lucy’s letters and learn about her experiences with smallpox, the dangers of the war, and her divided family.

This event is for teachers, students and their families — and everyone with an interest in history!
