Redefining American Patriotis: Identity and Military Service in Nineteenth Century Massachusetts
Join Fort Ticonderoga’s Curator, Dr. Matthew Keagle, and the Museum of African American History’s Director of Education and Interpretation, L'Merchie Frazier, as they discuss the ways in which Irish-American and African American communities combined their own identities with patriotic service to gain broader acceptance and agency in Massachusetts society. They will focus on two military units: the Montgomery Guards, the first Irish-American militia company formed in Boston in 1837, and the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment, the first African American unit raised in the North to fight in the American Civil War. Join us as we uncover the trials that each unit faced and the impacts they had on society in Massachusetts.
