Revolutionary times

Posted by Jan Gardner August 3, 2006 10:36 AM

Next month the Old South Meeting House is taking "A Radical Look at the American Revolution.'' The first two lectures will include booksignings.

On Sept. 6, Ray Raphael, a regular on the History Channel, will discuss the dynamic between the "leaders'' and their "followers'' in Revolutionary Boston. He is author of "Founding Myths,'' just out in paperback.

The following Wednesday, Sept. 13, Russell Bourne will talk about the role of the waterfront "mobs" in the Revolution. Bourne's "Cradle of Violence'' was published earlier this year.

The free 1-hour lectures start at 6:30 p.m.
