Walker Lecture Series Announces 124th Spring Season

Since 1896, the Walker Lecture Series has brought stimulating speakers and musicians to Concord, but for now, in-person performances are out and virtual performances are in.   Some Walker Lectures will be available on the city’s public access TV channel and others will be live Zoom events, both platforms hosted by Concord TV.  This spring’s offerings range far and wide with programs as exotic as the jungles of Namibia and as local as the concert halls of Concord’s South End. 

In the Walker tradition, all performances are free with no tickets or reservations required.

All programs are virtual and all start at 7:30 PM.

Visit www.walkerlecture.org for details and Zoom invitations.

George Morrison
Two NH Revolutionaries: John Stark and Henry Dearborn

Our NH vehicle license plates proclaim, “Live free Or Die,” but when a man lives more than ninety years, his life deserves more than four words. Redeemed captive, and captain in Rogers’ Rangers, John Stark distinguished himself in the early battles at Bunker Hill, Trenton and Bennington, where his leadership proved critical to the success of The Cause.

In April 1775, when Captain Henry Dearborn marched his Nottingham company to join with other NH troops besieging Boston, never could he have imagined that their first fight, in which he distinguished himself, would lead to bitter political controversy some forty years in the future. From Bunker Hill, the march led on, north to Québec and captivity, to parole and promotion, Washington and Yorktown, Congress and Jefferson’s cabinet, west to Michigan and east to Portugal.

George Morrison, a life-long photographer, historian, and motorcyclist, tells us the stories of these two NH men and the American Revolution. Learn More
