Talbot Historical Society: A Date With History

April 12 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


A panel of local experts and descendants will discuss the history of settlement at Easton Point with a focus on Captain Clement Vickars and his family. Vickars was a pivotal figure locally during the War of 1812 and throughout the Federal Period. He defied the British throughout the blockades on the Chesapeake to supply the townspeople of Easton, only to pay a terrible price at the close of conflict. Priscilla Morris, Pete Lesher, Bob Shannahan, and Vickars descendant Marion Lyttle will present, beginning with an overview of Easton Point from 1659 to the Federal beginnings of Easton and concluding with current efforts to reclaim recognition for the early families still buried at Easton Point.
