In honor of the Bicentennial of General Tadeusz Kosciuszkos death, the Kosciuszko Foundation Philadelphia Chapter will be hosting a public lecture at the Museum of the American Revolution.
Dr. Gary B. Nash, Distinguished Professor and Director Emeritus, National Center for History in the Schools, will be presenting a talk based on his book Friends of Liberty: Thomas Jefferson, Tadeusz Kosciuszko and Agrippa Hull.
The lecture will be followed by a reception during which guests will raise a toast with General Tadeusz Kosciuszko in mind. The Kosciuszko Bridge is a cocktail created for ‘The Vodka Contract,’ a special event from the Spring Spirits series at Brooklyn’s Museum of Food & Drink (MOFAD) under the auspices of the Polish Cultural Institute New York. Joining the spirits of two nations, this aromatic concoction is a melding of the Polish herbal Bison Grass vodka, Zubrówka with New York’s own Dorothy Parker Gin and a splash of Doc’s Draft Cider. It’s the perfect drink for welcoming the newest New York bridge and for saying goodbye to the old one. As the engineer responsible for the fortifications at West Point – Tadeusz Kosciuszko would have certainly approved.
This event is presented by the Kosciuszko Foundation Philadelphia Chapter with support of the Polish Cultural Institute New York.
