Here is a small preview of what is to come - a taste of the presentation that my daughter and I attended last Sunday at the Marblehead (MA) Historical Society and Museum - entitled The Last Muster. Maureen shared highlights of her latest book by the same name. The Last Muster contains images of the Revolutionary War generation. Maureen identifies the daguerreotypes published and also presents the history of the people in those photos.
Known as the "Photo Detective", she is an amazing sleuth when it comes to identifying old photos of different types. Her presentation detailed the painstaking and sometime serendipitous process by which she identified which photos were of Revolutionary War heroes and explored their roles in the war.
