A Taste of Democracy: Federal Cake, Liberty Tea, and Culinary Activism in the Early Republic.

Moderated by Stratford Hall’s Director of Programming, Education, and Visitor Engagement Dr. Kelley Fanto Deetz, join us October 3 for virtual slices of Federal Cake and a cup of Liberty Tea as we explore links among food, drink, and politics in the years surrounding the American Revolution.

This event is made possible in part by a grant from Virginia Humanities.
