The presentation for the January 31st tea, by Mike Welch, will focus on communication through flags, as he shares his impressive collection with us. Revolutionary War Era flags were far more than colorfully graphic pieces of fabric. Each had its story, often expressing powerful symbolism, functioning as a broad and effective means of conveying identification and messages to the public. No matter whether used by militias, towns, colonies -- or countries, everyone recognized the meaning of each flag and flew them proudly.

Tickets for TEA #3 on January 31st, 2018 are available by phone, email or at the museum store during open hours:
