Franklin Historical Museum - Chris Woolf - "How Russian meddling impacted the American Revolution" - Feb 9, 2020

As our Second Sunday Speaker Series continues in February 2020, we welcome local resident and historian Chris Woolf as he discusses ‘How Russian meddling impacted the American Revolution’. Russia was one of the great powers of the 18th century and, while far off, its decisions had an impact on the outcome of the American Revolution. 

Although the title of the topic is a little provocative, as it plays on modern headlines, it mostly focuses on two interesting diplomatic events that helped shape the course of the war. It’s a good reminder that the revolution ended the way it did.

Chris Woolf is the ‘History Guy’. He is news Editor of public radio’s The World (the public radio production of the BBC, PRX and WGBH). Also Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer at The Voice Depot. Chris is a storyteller and lover of history who enjoys analyzing and explaining international relations, historical issues, foreign policy, defense issues, military operations, strategic thinking, etc. etc. 

Join us on Sunday, February 9 at 1:10 PM for his historic and unique look at the American War for Independence. 

The Second Sunday Speaker Series is supported by the Friends of the Franklin Historical Museum. The museum is located at 80 West Central Street. We are ADA compliant, admission is always free and donations are gratefully accepted.
