Aston Township Historical Society (ATHS) is pleased to welcome local amateur historian, Mr. Albert Eelman to their quarterly meeting on November 9Th, 2017, at 7 PM at the Aston Township Community Center. The Community Center is located on South Concord Road just south of 5 Points and across from St. Joseph's RC Church.
Mr. Eelman, a longtime Concord Township resident, will be speaking on the one of his few areas of American History that he concentrates on. Mr. Eelman will fascinate us with the story of the betrayal by General Benedict Arnold. There is a lot more to General Arnold's story that you might know and Mr. Eelman will share that with us. What really motivated a military hero to turn coat of his country? This timely lecture caps the anniversary of the 240Th commemoration of the Battle of Brandywine.
This talk will bookend the popular talk earlier this year highlighting Peggy Shippen Arnold and Mrs. Leiper by Angela Hewitt of the Leiper House.
This exciting lecture is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 PM. There is plenty of free parking, too! Please bring old photos for scanning. Please see any of the board members about interesting volunteer opportunities. Donations are always appreciated. ATHS Tee Shirts will also be available for sale and make great Christmas presents!
