History Happy Hour Episode 179 - John Hancock
Guest: Brooke Barbier
Sunday, January 7, 2024
This week on History Happy Hour: Today most people remember little more about John Hancock than his signature, but 250 years ago this Boston businessman was a powerful and popular patriot leader who, on multiple occasions, played a vital role in the fight for Independence.
Chris and Rick start the new year by diving back into the Revolution (or is it the War of Independence?) and talking to Brooke Barbier, author of King Hancock: The Radical Influence of a Moderate Founding Father.
Sunday at 4PM on History Happy Hour, where history is always on tap.
