"We have at last crossed the Delaware and are agreeably lodged at Easton, a little town situated on a point of land formed by the Delaware on one side, and the river Lehigh on the other."
That's John Adams in 1777, writing to his wife. The future president and Revolutionary War statesman would pass through the city again in September of that year, when the British army had invaded Philadelphia.
Next month, you can step back in time to that September 1777 visit at Easton's Bachmann Publick House, where actor Christopher Black will portray Adams.
The dinner theater event is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 20 at 6 p.m. Tickets are $50, and seating is limited.
