Described by author, historian, and physician Dr. Samuel Forman as "a (mostly) serious talk on seasonally appropriate themes," this pre-Halloween lecture will share highlights of the strange journey of famed Revolutionary Joseph Warren's skeletal remains.Contrary to urban legend, Dr. Warren's skull was never displayed at Old South Meeting House=but his remains have shown up in a considerable number of other locations over the years! Join us to leaven some unusual facts of Dr. Warren's travels after his formative role in the American Revolution and death in the Battle of Bunker Hill.This program is made possible by funding from the Lowell Institute.
