Gig Length: 30 - 60 minutes
What to Expect
An audience will learn something new about one of our nation's founding fathers...Peter Francisco! My performance will bring to life the battlefields of the Revolutionary War and your audience will learn more about the price that was paid for our freedom. I speak for 30-40 minutes and I keep the story flowing with humor, tears, and a dramatic ending.
Additional Booking Notes
I conceal a replica 6' broadsword during my presentation and bring it out at the climactic moment in the story. Your audience will love wielding the sword afterwards and they'll want to purchase my book and DVD to learn the rest of the story.
Influences & Inspiration
My performance for the 1st Lady of Portugal has influenced me the most and the ladies of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
