Lecture with Eliga Gould

Friends of John Jay Homestead present a lecture with Eliga Gould on his forthcoming book Crucible of Peace: The Turbulent History of America’s Founding Treaty on Thursday, April 18 at 7:00pm at Bedford Playhouse in Bedford, NY. 
John Jay was the third member (along with Benjamin Franklin and John Adams) of the Peace Commission which produced the treaty ending the Revolution and definitively established the independence of the “United States.” Eliga Gould, Professor of History at the University of New Hampshire, calls this Treaty of Paris “the third founding document, equal in importance to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.” He has won multiple prizes for his other books, and multiple fellowships for his work. Note: this book is still a work in progress!
This lecture will be held at Bedford Playhouse (633 Old Post Rd, Bedford, NY) due to ongoing construction at John Jay Homestead.
6:30 – Reception with light refreshments
7:00 – Lecture begins
