Revolutionary War Ties To Birchwood, Nova Scotia, Resettlement Site Of Emancipated Slaves: Fraunces Tavern Museum Presents Keynote Address By Lenore Zann, Voice Of Rogue


New York, NY— On Oct 13th: a keynote address from Lenore Zann.

A former Member of Parliament and the House of Commons under Trudeau’s government in Canada, Lenore spearheaded funding for Revolutionary War-linked museums in Nova Scotia, including the Birchtown Museum, which explores the lives of the former enslaved, some of whom were granted safe passage at Fraunces Tavern during the Birch Trials– the largest emancipation prior to the Civil War.

Ms. Zann will speak on this subject and talk about the museum in Canada that has direct ties to Fraunces Tavern, linking our two sites in a profound way. Learn More about the Event

Silent Auctions, sketch artists, book signings, photo ops, open bar, and hors d’oeuvres, complete the team-up!

In addition as an actress and the voice of Rogue from the X-Men, Lenore also fits in nicely with our current exhibit, “Cloaked Crusader: George Washington in Comics and Pop Culture,” which looks at 100 years of Washington in comic books and popular culture.


Joining Lenore is the co-creator of Rogue, Michael Golden as well as Marvel Zombies artist Arthur Suydam– both of which have original art on display in the show– among other surprise guests.


Cloaked Crusader: George Washington in Comics and Pop Culture, the new book by Renee Witterstaetter, will also be available for the first time anywhere on this night with Renee signing copies for those in attendance. Supplies may be limited, so order yours in advance. Lenore will be signing autographs and speaking during the event.
