Manufacturing Independence: Industrial Innovation in the American Revolution

How did the colonies rally when trade networks were destroyed, inflation undermined the economy, and artisans could not produce enough weapons to equip an army?

Join Dr. Robert F. Smith, Assistant Dean of Humanities at Northampton Community College, to learn the untold story of how “Americans made their own Industrial Revolution” and won victory in the War for Independence.

Signed copies of Manufacturing Independence, illustrated with portraits of key military figures and pictures of the technology behind the armaments, will be available for purchase.

Program is free with museum admission.
