In the Historical Spotlight with Dr. Steven Elliott & State Rep. Robert Freeman | LV Discourse

John Pearce spotlights history as he welcomes Dr. Steven Elliott, author of Surviving the Winters: Housing George Washington's Army During the American Revolution to talk about the Continental Army’s military shelter strategy, specifically winter encampments.

Then, Pennsylvania State Representative of the 136th district, Robert Freeman, stops by to talk about the history of Easton — including why Heritage Day is celebrated on July 8, not July 4, and the importance of the two rivers.

Tune in to Lehigh Valley Discourse Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:00 PM following All Things Considered.
