Ocean County Library Upper Shores Branch presents "Dorothy Quincy Hancock: Witness to a Revolution"

(LAVALLETTE, NJ) -- Gain a unique perspective on the birth of our nation, when the Ocean County Library Upper Shores Branch presents historical interpreter Kim Hanley’ in, “Dorothy Quincy Hancock: Witness to a Revolution,” on Saturday, September 24 at 2:00pm.

Dorothy Quincy and her wealthy fiancé, John Hancock, were in Massachusetts in April 1775, when the “shot heard ‘round the world” was fired. Newly wed in 1776, she was his unofficial secretary when John signed the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia.

Two years later, the Bread Riots of France threatened the delicate French Alliance until Dorothy’s valuable diplomatic skills rescued the pact in Boston. She carried on and amassed many of the most fascinating tales of the war with England.  

Actor-singer-dancer-costumer Kim Hanley (shown at the top of the article portraying Dorothy Quincy Hancock) has re-created historical figures in the White House Visitors Center, National Archives, National Portrait Gallery, Mount Rushmore, and dozens of sites in New York, Philadelphia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC.

Registration at www.theoceancountylibrary.org/events is required for this free program. The Upper Shores Branch is at 112 Jersey City Avenue, Lavallette. For more information, visit the Branch, or call (732) 793-3996.
