In this lecture, Johnson will explore how, in the midst of British military occupation, men and women from a variety of backgrounds navigated harsh conditions, mitigated threats to their families and livelihoods, took advantage of new opportunities, and balanced precariously between revolutionary and royal attempts to secure their allegiance. In so doing, Johnson argues that these people and their experiences shaped the course of the Revolution, gradually discrediting Britain’s ability to govern the former colonies and rotting their attempts to restore order from the inside out.
This lecture will take place via Zoom. Registration ends at 3:30pm on the day of the lecture. Please select March 11 on the calendar to purchase your ticket.
