Heritage Trust Speaker To Discuss Gen. Greene

Originally published: 2013-11-14 11:12:47

The 41st annual Early American Christmas Dinner presented by the Greene County Heritage Trust will present author Janet Uhlar and a discussion of Gen. Nathanael Greene, for whom this county is named.

The dinner is often seen as the traditional beginning of the community's holiday social activity.

The event is planned for the evening of Thursday, Dec. 5, at the General Morgan Inn. A reception will begin at 6 p.m. and be followed by dinner at 7 p.m.

Uhlar lives on Cape Cod, Mass. She was born and raised in Quincy, Mass., hometown of John Adams and John Hancock.

She is a trustee of the Nathanael Greene Homestead Association and the Monument Foundation.

Uhlar has written several books including "Liberty's Martyr," "The Story of Dr. Joseph Warren" and "Freedom's Cost: the Story of General Nathanael Greene."

When she accepted the Heritage Trust's invitation to speak, she wrote, "I have presented to various audiences, but my greatest joy is to present forgotten heroes of the American Revolution (specifically Gen. Greene here) to students."

Plans are being made by the Heritage Trust for her to speak in schools and student groups while in Greeneville.

Tickets for the Early American Christmas Dinner are $45 each. To purchase tickets, call Marilyn Heilman at 639-9245 or visit or call the Greeneville/Greene County Public Library at 210 N. Main (638-5034). To use a credit card, call The General Morgan Inn at 111 N. Main St. (787-1000).
