The War of 1812: Songs and Stories from New York and Beyond

 

A lecture and concert by Dave Ruch

 

Wed. July 4, 2012

2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site

Memorial Grove off West Main St. (bring a lawn chair)

Dave Ruch presents a fascinating portrait of the War of 1812 through the songs and stories of the people themselves. Ruch has dug deeply into archival recordings, diaries, old newspapers and other historical manuscripts to unearth a wealth of rarely-heard music which, alongside some of the classics from the war, offers a rounded and fascinating picture of this “second war of independence.” Special emphasis is given to New York State’s important role in the conflict.

This Speakers in the Humanities event, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities
