Boaze to speak at Historical Society meeting

Living history interpreter Raleigh Boaze will speak to the Sharpsburg Historical Society at Sharpsburg Town Hall Tuesday, March 12.

Boaze will appear in the persona of a backwoodsman dressed in period clothing and carrying the weapons and accouterments a hunter of the time would have carried.

Boaze will discuss the events surrounding Joseph Chapline’s 1763 chartering of Sharpsburg, the oldest town in what is now Washington County.

Boaze will describe the frontier settlers’ strife at the hands of the Native Americans aligned with the French, the French and Indian War, and the period leading up to the American Revolution.

Boaze has spoken to groups in Maryland and Virginia, including as Flagon and Trencher, the descendants of Colonial tavern keepers.
