At some point in our lives we have all studied the American Revolution. For most of us it seems long ago and far away, but it doesn’t have to…
Maureen Taylor, the “Photo Detective” is partnering with award-winning documentary producers Verissima Productions of Cambridge, MA, to create a film that will offer a fresh perspective on the American Revolution. Maureen has spent the past ten years discovering and authenticating 200 photographs of individuals who lived during the Revolutionary War and now we’re putting their stories into a film.
We’ll see soldiers, slaves, pacifists, and children and hear about their stories during a time when these colonists were risking everything to achieve independence. Viewers will accompany Maureen on her journeys as the “photo detective”, as she searches for images and records, locates places where subjects lived, and interviews descendants to create a correspondence between past and present.Added information from Dick Eastman:
