Grange Receives New Hampshire Humanities Grant for NH Cemeteries and Gravestones!
Hillsborough County Pomona Grange #1 has received a grant from New Hampshire Humanities to present NH Cemeteries and Gravestones.
This program will be presented on Saturday, October 6th, at 7:30 p.m., at the James Tuttle Library in Antrim.
Rubbings, photographs, and slides illustrate the rich variety of gravestones to be found in our own neighborhoods, but they also tell long-forgotten stories of such historical events as the Great Awakening, the Throat Distemper epidemic, and the American Revolution.
Find out more about these deeply personal works of art and the craftsmen who carved them with Glenn Knoblock, and learn how to read the stone "pages" that give insight into the vast genealogical book of New Hampshire. Glenn Knoblock is an independent scholar and author of fifteen books and over 100 articles. He is also the author and historian on projects relating to Northern New England bridges, brewing history, and African-American military history. Knoblock has served as the main military contributor to Harvard and Oxford University's landmark African-American Biography Project. He holds a BA in History from Bowling Green State University. This program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. New Hampshire Humanities nurtures the joy of learning and inspires community engagement by bringing life-enhancing ideas from the humanities to the people of New Hampshire. They connect people with ideas.
