Preservation Burlington: Corin Hirsch - Forgotten Drinks of Colonial New England 02/27/2014

Colonial New England was awash in ales, beers, wines, cider and spirits. Everyone from teenage farmworkers to our founding fathers imbibed heartily and often. Tipples at breakfast, lunch, teatime and dinner were the norm, and low-alcohol hard cider was sometimes even a part of children's lives. New England food and drinks writer Corin Hirsch explores the origins and taste of the favorite potations of early Americans and offers some modern-day recipes to revive them today in her book 'Forgotten Drinks of Colonial New England: From Flips and Rattle-Skulls to Switchel and Spruce Beer'.

Ethan Allen Homestead Enrichment Program: From Rebellion to Revolution: The Case of Vermont 02/16/2014

When the Minutemen assembled at Lexington and Concord, did they know that they were firing the first shots in a struggle that would lead to the dissolution of the union between Great Britain and her American Colonies? Most historic records indicate that most rebels hoped for reconciliation with the Crown, yet the purpose of the struggle changed.

What is the historical distinction between a revolution and a rebellion? While on the surface, they may often describe the same acts, the results of the actions often makes the distinction. Museum Director Daniel O'Neil explores the motivations behind many of the players in Vermont's Revolutionary Struggle, and how they changed from rebels to revolutionaries.
