Society Awarded NEH Grant

The MHS has received a $160,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The funds will enable us to develop and present two one-week Landmark Institutes for eighty high school teachers from across the country in partnership with Minute Man National Historical Park. The workshops, "At the Crossroads of Revolution: Lexington and Concord in 1775," will take place from 18-23 July and 1-6 August 2010. Jayne Gordon and Kathleen Barker of the Society's Education department will be the project co-directors. Among the scholars lined up for the institutes are William Fowler, Robert Gross, Brian Donohue, and Ray Raphael.

More information on the NEH's Landmark Institutes program is available here.
