Clinton and Killingworth in the American Revolution
Were the residents of Clinton and Killingworth Tories – people who were deeply loyal to the crown? Or were they ardent patriots who fought and died for American independence? Dave LeVasseur, past president of the Killingworth Historical Society and former Town Historian for Killingworth, has done extensive research and discovered the answers. Come find out the identity of the Revolutionary spy whose name was only revealed in the 1950s – and learn about one of the most horrific murders on the shoreline. This free lecture is co-sponsored by the Clinton Historical Society and the Killingworth Historical Society.
