  25. The Widow of Mount Holly

    December 17, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences

    She has been described as the Widow who saved a Revolution, but no one knows her name. A Hessian officer in 1776 described her as “the exceedingly beautiful young widow of a doctor”. But is that really a clue to who she was? Or is it a clue to whom she wanted them to believe she was. The famous Widow of Mount Holly did indeed aid the Revolution, though it is doubtful she knew to what extent. The existence of this widow was only discovered in 1979 with the publication of Johann Ewald’s personal diary written during the Revolution. Join Eric Orange as we commemorate The Battle of Iron Works Hill and unveil the identity of the widow. This program will take place on Zoom. Registration required.
