All about Cushing’s important mission
Local historian Jim Dyer will highlight “The Five Reasons Caleb Cushing Needed to go to China in 1843” in a free talk Wednesday at the First Religious Society.
Dyer will discuss the importance of Cushing’s success to the United States’ global diplomatic posture, the American mercantile community and his own political aspirations.
Cushing, who was a Newburyport resident, was appointed as an ambassador to China by President John Tyler in 1843. He negotiated the Treaty of Wang Hiya, the first treaty between China and the United States.
Attendees are invited to arrive at noon with their own lunches, which they can enjoy before the lecture starts at 1. Desserts and coffee will be provided.
The presentation will take place in the Parish Hall, 26 Pleasant St., Newburyport.
