The Last Muster: Photographs & Stories from the American Revolution
Wednesday October 11, 2017
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM
As unbelievable as it seems, many individuals who participated in the American Revolution lived beyond the advent of photography in 1839. Learn about the detective work involved in uncovering these “misplaced” pictures. Maureen Taylor, an internationally recognized expert on historic photograph identification, will share the stories of the men and women who were members of the first photographed generation. Maureen's pioneering work in historic photo research is unprecedented, evidenced by her success in solving photo mysteries. The author of several books, scholarly articles and online columns, she appeared on The View and The Today Show for completing Meredith Viera’s family tree. She has been featured in numerous publications including The Boston Globe, The New York Times, Better Homes and Gardens, and was dubbed “the nation’s foremost historical photo detective” by The Wall Street Journal.
