TUESDAY - FEBRUARY 13, 2024 - 7:00 P.M.
“Revolutionary War Weaponry and Its Effect on Military Tactics” will be presented by Durant Ashmore, a Historian and Battlefield Preservationist, on Tuesday, February 13, 7:00 PM, at the Laurens County Museum.
The Revolutionary War Battlefield was not a place to witness new technology weaponry. Battles were fought as they had been for centuries and according to Ashmore, the weaponry of the American Revolution can be described as nothing more than primitive. Those primitive weapons dictated the style of fighting and the tactics used. Re-enactor and Weapons Historian, Frank Finizia will assist at the lecture.
This lecture is co-sponsored by the Laurens County Revolutionary War 250 Committee and the Laurens County Museum
Laurens County Museum - 116 South Public Square - Laurens, SC 29360
