Ebenezer Allen Visits Collin College

On March 29, 2017, I presented my class on “Ebenezer Allen – Statesman, Entrepreneur, and Spy” to students in the SAIL program at Collin College.

I departed from the usual format in my classes and taught the class as a living historian. For ninety minutes,  I tried my best to invoke what I thought Colonel Allen might sound like (a New Hampshire accent) and look like (in appropriate attire).

Here are a few pictures from the class.
