October 27-28, 2023
at the John Harris-Cameron Mansion in Harrisburg, PA.
Farmers, Tinkerers, and Tailors: The Hidden Lives of Statesmen Throughout History
Through its 200+ year history, Harrisburg, PA has welcomed 40 presidents through its city gates. While we primarily know them for their brief stints in office, our statesmen were farmers, tailors, and tradesmen first and foremost.
Our Keynote Speaker will be Ron Carnegie, an ALHFAM member and first-person interpreter for Colonial Williamsburg. Our program features traditional, hands-on, and workshop presentations, including: Thomas Jefferson's agricultural activities, a dance fundamentals workshop, a presentation about an assassinated Revolutionary War veteran and so much more!
