A Hunterdon Silver Dog-Head Sword and the Civil War within the American Revolution
Come hear stories of Hunterdon patriots and loyalists discovered while exploring the history of a Revolutionary War sword. Dr. Lawrence Brasher, a native of Morristown and professor at Birmingham-Southern College, will exhibit his heirloom 1775 silver-hilted dog-head sword--the rarest form of Revolutionary War sword--made in Hunterdon County. Only a handful of such swords exist. Larry's research reveals the sword's connections to Trenton silversmiths, Washington's crossing, Scotch-Irish animosities toward England, and the loyalist raid on the Jones Tavern in Lebanon Township (now Clinton). The sword story uncovers shifting patriot-loyalist commitments within local families and the civil war that divided Revolutionary Hunterdon County. This presentation will intrigue anyone who is interested in the Revolution and also anyone who has a family artifact and wonders how it relates to the history of its time. After his talk, Larry will be available to sign copies of his new book about the sword and the Revolution in Hunterdon County.
