Portraits of Independence: The Faces of Mount Independence
September 29, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
472 Mt Independence Rd
Orwell, VT 05760 United States
Sponsored by: Mount Independence State Historic Site
This illustrated symposium examines the story of Mount Independence through the portraits of the limited number of people who were here and whose likenesses were taken. Site administrator Elsa Gilbertson presents the cast of characters and their portraits, removed from today’s audience by only one degree of separation (through the hand of the artists). A panel of respondents, Michael Barbieri, Ennis Duling, and Stephen Zeoli, moderated by site interpreter Paul Andriscin, will provide insights about these people, such as what was happening when they were at Mount Independence, their Contributions, interactions, and if they survived, what they did after the war. Audience participation and discussion welcome. Light refreshments.
