Lecture Details Dunbar Battle Soldier’s Journey to America
South Berwick, Maine- Old Berwick Historical Society will present an online lecture on Thursday, April 22, at 7:30pm titled, “Involuntary Americans: Scottish Prisoners in Early Colonial Maine”. Dr. Carol Gardner will detail the lives of some of Maine’s earliest settlers: prisoners of war who were sent to Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts against their will in 1650-1651. As forced laborers and later as free men, these solders left their marks on early New England society. Evidence of their existence is with us still. Dr. Gardener’s recently published narrative history of the same title chronicles the life and times of Scottish foot soldier Thomas Doughty, who was captured at the Battle of Dunbar, shipped to Boston, sold to a Puritan industrialist in New Hampshire, and eventually established his own milling operation on the Saco River in Maine.
Participants can register for the online lecture on the Old Berwick Historical Society’s website. Admission is free to members, with a $5 suggested donation for non-members. The lecture is open to the public.
Carol Gardner has more than 30 years’ experience as a writer, journalist and communicator. She earned a Ph.D. in English from Johns Hopkins University, taught at The Johns Hopkins, Wake Forest, and Florida State Universities, and has published both fiction and nonfiction pieces in a wide variety of books and periodicals, including the World of Baseball series, BluePlanet Quarterly, Northwest Review, Baltimore Review, Potomac Review, The Women’s Review of Books, Portland Press Herald, and The Washington Post. She is a past winner of a Maryland Individual Artists Award. Her latest work is a narrative history on life in early New England: The Involuntary American: A Scottish Prisoner’s Journey to the New World. She lives in Alna, Maine.
The Counting House Museum is now open to the public by appointment. The Old Berwick Historical Society’s 2021 lectures are generously sponsored by Kennebunk Savings and supported by historical society members and donors. More information is available by calling 207-384-0000 or at www.oldberwick.org.
