The program, which is free and open to the public, will focus on relics that have been discovered in Clinton County between 1774 and 1815. Mr. Sorrell will share a Powerpoint presentation, relics and photos of relics he has discovered in Clinton County.

Mr. Sorrell will present his research that has identified and cataloged relics that reflect every day life in Clinton County as well as that period of time in our history.  He will share actual artifacts that he has identified and pictures of others.  Those relics are also representative to the period and history of the military and the soldiers who used them and left them behind.
