Black Powder Tavern's Historical Dinner Series continues on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 with the focus on the crucial Battle of Germantown.
Our speaker, Carolyn Wallace, will discuss the Battle of Germantown and unpack Washington’s plan to liberate occupied Philadelphia. Find out what happened on that gray, foggy morning in October 1777 and see how the battle is remembered by the community and in art. Also find out why the aftermath of the Battle of Paoli played a part in this battle. We all know about the victory at Saratoga, but this battle also played part in the French recognizing the United States as an independent country that helped sway them into helping the American cause.
During the event, we’ll be pouring Yards Brewing Company’s Thomas Jefferson Golden Ale and George Washington Porter.
Light appetizers will be served at 5:30 p.m. Dinner orders will begin at 6:00 p.m., and dinner will be served around 6:30 p.m. View menu here.
A Q&A session will follow with complimentary coffee and mini desserts.
