ANNUAL MEETING AND FREE ILLUSTRATED LECTURE
Williamstown, 10:30 a.m.
Join us on June 24 at 10:30 am. at Sweetwood of Williamstown, 1611 Cold Spring Road for the WHM Annual Meeting and free local history lecture. Following the Annual Meeting of the Williamstown Historical Museum, favorite lecturer, Dustin Griffin, will give a talk he has entitled "Enemies of the People: Political Divisions in Early Williamstown." Our speaker will look at two moments of intense political division with a narrowly local focus on Williamstown, to show that even this little country town was the scene of bitter recrimination. In 1775 it was Patriots vs. Loyalists. In 1800 it was Federalists vs. Republicans.

WILLIAMSTOWN HISTORICAL MUSEUM ANNUAL MEETING, TALK
Williamstown, 10:30 a.m.
Following the Annual Meeting of the Williamstown Historical Museum, Dustin Griffin will present a talk titled "Enemies of the People: Political Divisions in Early Williamstown" at Sweetwood of Williamstown. In today's overheated political climate it's common for newspapers on one side of the political divide to denounce the other side in vehemently polemical terms, and even to hear the phrase "enemy of the people" thrown around quite deliberately. Surely, we say, such extreme language is “unAmerican.” In fact, it was commonplace in 18th-century America. Griffin will look at two moments of intense political division with a narrowly local focus on Williamstown, to show that even this little country town was the scene of bitter recrimination.
