“Traitors Among Us”: Nehemiah Field and the American Revolution
Join us at the Lewes History Museum on Second Fridays during the spring and fall seasons for our Meet the Past lecture series. These informative programs provide scholarly presentations based on stories from Lewes’ past and complement current exhibitions at our museums.
Presented By: Andrew Lyter, LHS Director of Interpretation and Curator of Maritime History
Nehemiah Field was a complicated and divisive individual living in Lewes during the American Revolutionary War. Field was raised in an affluent Lewes family, served as a Pilot of the Bay and River Delaware, and owned multiple properties in Lewes prior to the Revolution. Field started the war as a merchant captain and patriot, but would later flee Lewes joining the British Naval forces on the Delaware Bay.
