    Curator’s Choice: Moors' Powderhorn

    Presented by at Massachusetts Historical Society

    Curator’s Choice: Moors' Powderhorn

    J.L. Bell will discuss the provenance, history, and people connected with one of the fascinating items featured in our current exhibition, The Object of History: Ephraim Moors's powder horn.

    Carvings on the horn include a crude drawing of the Continental Army encampment on Winter Hill, five grenadiers, a mansion house, and the head of a beast. Aside from what the carving itself says and the name of the sea captain who donated it to the Massachusetts Historical Society, almost nothing else is known about this object.
