The Rochester Historical Society and Museum is pleased to host a presentation about John Stark and the Revolutionary War, led by Paul Timmerman, on Thursday, March 10, at 7pm. The event is free and open to the public.
According to Timmerman, the presentation will highlight the life of John Stark, his formative years, and his service with British Rogers Rangers.
“We’ll talk about Stark’s knack for being at and influencing key moments during the Revolution without which, things could have turned out very differently,” said Timmerman. “As part of the presentation, I like to emphasize that history is with us today and we can visit and experience a part of it.”
Paul Timmerman has a long-standing interest in American history. He is a Civil War re-enactor, currently with the 1st NH Light Artillery. He’s also a Revolutionary War re-enactor, currently with the 1st NH Regiment. Timmerman is currently serving as Chairman of the Board for the Woodman Museum in Dover, NH, a member of the Friends of Fort Constitution, and leads the planning committee for the 250th Anniversary of the Raid on Fort William and Mary.
