The Struggle For Freedom

The Chester County Historial Society (CCHS) will be presenting "The Struggle For Freedom, Documented" on Tuesday, 19 June at Barnaby's in West Chester.

According to CCHS: Laurie Rofini, Director of Chester County Archives and Records Services and CCHS staff member, and Rob Lukens, Ph.D., CCHS President, will offer an exploration of two Chester County stories - the 1852 Pennsylvania Woman's Rights Convention and the 1821 murder trials of John Reed, a former slave. Using rare archival documents as a guide, Rofini and Lukens uncover stories that center on the core principle of freedom in American history.

This brief 25-30 minute presentation will be followed by discussion, Q & A, and good conversation. And of course, there will be lots of great beer and good food. History on Tap brings history to you in the casual atmosphere of your favorite local bar or restaurant. The program is free for the community to enjoy!
