Treason Island: The Blennerhassets and Aaron Burr

Saturday, July 9 at 9 pm


Blennerhassett's artistic profileTREASON ISLAND is the story of Anglo-Irish immigrants Harman and Margaret Blennerhassett and their involvement with America’s fallen founder, Aaron Burr. Blennerhassett, who fled Ireland due to social scandal and his involvement with the Irish revolution, settled on the edge of civilization in the Ohio River Valley in 1798.

The island on which he attempted to create his paradise sits near Marietta, Ohio, which was at that time the gateway to the Northwest Territory, and now carries his name.
