The Mohicans: The First 100 Years of Contact
Featuring Paul McBride, Independent Scholar

2 PM Sunday April 12, 2015, at the Roe Jan Historical Society Museum in Copake Falls, NY

Mr. McBride holds a B.A. and a B.S. in History and Archeology. He will take us on a tour of the world of the Mohicans; their land and their culture from the advent of Henry Hudson in 1609 to the settlers in the early 1700's. He is particularly interested in the Mohican relationships with both the early settlers as well as with the citizens of the Iroquois Nation in what became known as the Hudson River Valley and the Berkshires.

Free Admission Limited Space

The program is co-sponsored by the Mt Washington Historical Society and the Roe Jan Historical Society. Paul lives on Mt Washington with his family and we are very lucky to have this chance to benefit from his work.
