Learn about 'Roots of Democracy in Early American Farming' April 16
Apr 11, 2016 11:43 AM -
At 1 p.m. Saturday, April 16, the program "Early American Farming" will be presented by Judith Broggi. Broggi wrote her master's degree thesis at Harvard University on this subject and the link between agriculture and patriotism. The image of the red barn, green pasture, farmhouse, animals, fields, and gardens is indelibly etched in the dearest, perhaps romanticized, image of America. This program will discuss how this image was created, and explore why it has outlived the reality in this country.
