Not much has been known of Dr. Joseph Warren- an architect of the colonial rebellion, and a man who might have led the country as Washington or Jefferson did had he not been martyred at Bunker Hill in 1775. Di Spigna will explore the documents and artifacts he uncovered in the 20 years spent researching Warren’s private life and public career, shedding new light on an often overlooked leader of the early Revolution.

Doors open at 6:00pm and close for entry at 6:50pm.
