Northampton County Flying Camp

Date/Time

Description

Join us for our next event when Rebecca Price Janney presents “Northampton County Flying Camp”.

Rebecca Price Janney’s newest books, a series of novels (3 now) about two people who live 250+ years apart, are joined by common experiences and a hometown. These are a result of her own family research about 10 years ago in which she uncovered layers of ancestors and their stories, including a fascinating figure--a Revolutionary War colonel and Pennsylvania "big wig."   Janney will tell the harrowing story of Colonel Peter Kichline and the Northampton County Flying Camp battalion that traveled north to fight in the Battle of Long Island with General George Washington.  She will also discuss how her research inspired these books along with the importance of knowing our own family stories. 

Social 6:30 p.m.; Presentation 7:00 p.m.
