Good episode? Give it some love!
Inns and taverns played prominent roles in early American life. They served the needs of travelers who needed food to eat and places to sleep.They offered local communities a form of poor relief. And they functioned as public spaces where men could gather to discuss news, organize movements, and to drink and play cards.
Adrian Covert, author of Taverns of the American Revolution, helps us explore taverns and the many roles they played in early American life.
