NATIONAL PARK RANGER WALK-ABOUT PROGRAM TO VISIT HEARTHSIDE ON AUGUST 2, 2012
"The War of 1812 and the Landscape of Great Road, Lincoln, RI"
"The War has renewed and reinstated the nations feelings and character which the Revolution had given, and which were daily lessened. The People...are more American, they feel and act more as a nation; and I hope the permanency of the Union is thereby better secured." ---Secretary of the Treasury, Albert Gallatin, 1816
The John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor and the National Park Service Rangers have selected Hearthside as one of the sites for their weekly Ranger Walkabout's being held this summer. Join us on Thursday evening, August 2nd, for a talk on the fascinating landscape of Great Road as we see it through the lens of the of 1812, a very confusing time period...for the people then and for us today as we commemorate the struggle that dramatically changed North America. The majestic beauty of Hearthside House will provide a great setting to talk about the landscape of Great Road, and offer an opportunity to explore the wonders of Hearthside.
The talk will begin at 6:30 PM under the tent on the grounds of Hearthside. There is parking at Hearthside, and overflow parking at the Hannaway Blacksmith Shop/Chase Farm Park just down the road. Great Road is a narrow, rural road with a great deal of traffic, so please be careful. The event is free!
