Loyalists in the Mid-Hudson Valley with Kieran O’Keefe (VIA ZOOM)
Date(s) - Saturday, March 13
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Saturday, March 13th at 1:00 PM, Join Kieran O’Keefe, a Ph.D. in history, to learn how the American Revolutionary War affected Loyalists from the Hudson Valley. This talk will explore the lives and experiences of Loyalists from the Hudson Valley during the Revolutionary War. Although many colonists supported American independence, a large minority favored remaining in the British Empire. Loyalists in the Hudson Valley faced an especially fraught situation, with much of the war raging in and around the region. We will learn who these Loyalists were, what their war experiences were like, and what happened to them after the Revolution.
Kieran O’Keefe received his Ph.D. in history from The George Washington University. Kieran’s dissertation focuses on Loyalists in the Hudson River Valley, exploring how violence, upheaval, and forced migration to Canada shaped Loyalist communities during and after the war. He is a native of Orange County and received his B.A. in history from Mount Saint Mary College and his M.A. at the University of Vermont.
