Morrow County Chapter, OGS – Dreams of Revolution
February 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Linda Collins will detail the settings, events and people she researched for her historic novel, Dreams of Revolution. The two main settings are Hopewell Furnace and Philadelphia in 1777-1778, during British occupation of the city. Hopewell supplied cannon and shot for the American Continental Army, a treasonous activity. The British luxuriated in Philadelphia while General Washington and his men froze at nearby Valley Forge. She gives a “tour” of Hopewell and talks about the King of Prussia Inn, the Library Company of Philadelphia, Carpenter’s Hall, Tun Tavern, and the events and men of that time period.
Linda J. Collins is a retired teacher of students with visual impairments and an avid genealogist. She is President of the Ashland County Genealogical Society, a member of DAR, and a Mayflower descendant of Peter Brown and Francis Cooke. She is a trustee and volunteers at the Richland County Probate Court project and was a field manager for the 2020 US Census. Her first historic novel, Dreams of Revolution, was published in 2021, and she is currently writing Ship of Despair, the true story of a terrible shipwreck in 1809. She lives in Mansfield with her two ornery cats, Violet and Ollie.
