Lunchtime Lecture: A Highland Broadsword
From: 12:30 PM to 01:00 PM
British military historian and armaments specialist Paul Newman discusses a Highland broadsword, the iconic weapon of the Highland Scots in the eighteenth century. This example was used during the Revolutionary War by Nicholas Ruxton Moore, an officer in the Fourth Continental Dragoons and the Maryland militia. It is featured in the current exhibition, A Revolution in Arms: Weapons in the War for Independence (through March 24, 2019).
The presentation will last approximately 30 minutes with time afterwards for up-close viewing of the sword.
