The American Revolution and the War of 1812 disrupted not only coastal trade but also families. Bigamy was not illegal and resulted in complicated lawsuits in New York and ultimately the U.S. Supreme Court.

A book signing will follow the presentation. Lunch & Presentation: $16 / CCHS member rate-$13; Presentation only: $8.50 / CCHS member rate-$5.50.
