Learn how the West Precinct of Pembroke came to be named for a fiery Federalist newspaper editor from Maryland? Come learn more about Alexander Hanson and the 1812 Mobtown Massacre, one of the most violent attacks against the press in the nation's history.
Hanson was a 19th century editor whose anti-war writings sparked a bloodthirsty mob, a midnight jailbreak and a brutal massacre in the city of Baltimore that stunned the nation. Hanson was later elected to the U.S. Congress and became one the youngest U.S. Senators in history, but he never fully recovered from the attacks. South Shore author Josh Cutler tells the story of this fateful but little-known episode in American history helped shape the course of a war and the nation’s promise of a free press. And it all started with a headline.
Event is free, seating is limited and will be held at Pembroke Historical Society Museum Building 116 Center Str Pembroke, MA 02359.
