This is a hybrid event. In person, $10 per person fee, no charge for MHS Members, Colonial Dames Members, EBT Cardholders, or virtual guests. The in-person reception starts at 5:30 and the program will begin at 6:00.


Dr. Heather Cox Richardson and Dr. Joanne Freeman are two of the leading historians of political conflict in America, with Freeman focusing on revolutionary, early national, and antebellum and Richardson exploring the Civil war, Reconstruction, and the West. They use their sweeping knowledge of history to help explain the politics and peculiarities of America today. Together they host a weekly podcast titled Now & Then where they help listeners make sense of the news through understanding the historical context.


In recognition of their scholarship and their “wide lens of history” that reflects on and informs our society, they will be presented with the William Hickling Prescott Award for Excellence in Historical Writing by the Massachusetts Society of The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America and the Massachusetts Historical Society. This award has been conferred biennially since 2014 by the Massachusetts Dames and recognizes literary accomplishments and contributions in the field of historical writing. Following the presentation, they will do what they do best, and have a conversation.
