Hazard Powder the development of gunpowder in America Thursday, 28 October, 7.30pm

Peter Sorenson will be talking from the United States on the development of gunpowder in America.

Peter is the author of Hazard Powder, the story of the rise and fall of the Hazard Powder Company, one of the largest
gunpowder manufacturers in the US in the 1800s, told in detail from its inception to its death in a violent explosion in 1913, nearly destroying the nearby Connecticut town of Hazardville.

It recounts the lives and deaths of the men and women who defined themselves by the work they chose and the turbulent times in which they lived at Powder Hollow.

Peter revealed links with Faversham!
