People did not become loyalists; it was the patriots who first began to craft an identity different from that of a loyal British subject.  In the struggle over identity and ideology, families were torn apart, friendships were broken, and lifelong residents of Massachusetts were forced to surrender their homes and possessions. Through letters, diaries, newspapers, propaganda, and historical sites, our workshop will introduce teachers to some of the people and places implicated in debates over loyalism between 1770 and 1785. 

This program is open to all K-12 educators.  Teachers can earn 45 Professional Development Points or 2 graduate credits (for an additional fee).

If you have any questions, please contact Kate Melchior at kmelchior@masshist.org or 617-646-0588.

In 2003, the pivotal case of Lawrence v. Texas overturned the Texas Homosexuality Conduct Law, decriminalizing “homosexuality” and paving the way for marriage equality.  During the case, lawyers and justices of the United States Supreme Court relied heavily on historical precedent, referencing everything from colonial sodomy laws to interracial marriage in their exploration of fundamental rights. Working with partners at History UnErased, we will examine the road to Lawrence v. Texas and its legacy in American society.
