The Cowden Drum

What is the Cowden Drum?

This valuable artifact from the Civil War was gifted to the Historical Society of Frankford by the Cowden family.  It is the subject of their May 10th meeting.

Historical Society president Jerry Kolankiewicz will discuss the rediscovery of the Cowden family and this Civil War drum’s history. Lara Kaplan, arts conservator at Winterthur Museum will explain her careful restoration of the drum.  Andy Waskie, an authority on the historical period, will provide some context.

The meeting is open to the public at the Society building at 1507 Orthodox Street at 7:30 PM on May 10th. In addition it will be live streamed live on their Facebook page and available on YouTube live.
