Master Class Online - A History of Easton in 12 Objects with Edmund Hands

Two Thursdays in October, join Ed Hands, local historian and educator, to explore the shadows and sunshine of Easton’s history through selection of artifacts from the Easton Historical Society!
In the first program, Thursday, October 15 at 7 p.m., we'll look at how something called a Galilean Protractor leads us to the heroic service of Revolutionary War Soldier Elisha Harvey and his sad afterlife. We'll examine what a document tells us about the end of slavery in tow, and how a Civil War presentation sword tells the story one of the youngest officers in town history.
In the second program, Thursday, October 22 at 7 p.m., flash back to the era of Happy Days as pictures and artifacts show us what Easton was like around 1958. Do you remember, or will you be surprised about what has changed and what has remained the same?
