Caldwell Heritage Museum program for Wednesday, March 27th

LENOIR, NC (March 24, 2024) ⇒ With America 250! not too far around the corner, what better way to begin an early segue into that season of celebrating our nation’s 250 birth year in 2026 than having historian and author Bob Plott share with us the rumblings of unrest and revolution that led to us becoming a nation.

Join historian and author Bob Plott on Wednesday, March 27, 2024 @ 10:00 a.m., for his program, “A Gathering Storm” as he discusses many relatively unknown reasons for unrest in the Carolina colonies that precipitated the Revolutionary War. Some of these issues began as early as 1761, and involved a host of colorful characters, including among others, British Generals, freed slaves, American frontiersmen and iconic Cherokee warriors and chiefs. Plott, using material from some of his six books and multiple other resources, skillfully weaves this story into an interesting blend of education and entertainment.”

If you haven’t heard Bob before, you are in for a treat!
