NEWBURYPORT — The Museum of Old Newbury will present a virtual program, "Newbury and Warfare on the New England Frontier, 1689-1748," with Steven C. Eames on Thursday at 7 p.m.

Eames has taught history for 35 years and his research focuses on the impact of war on people, both soldiers and civilians.

His most recent book, "Rustic Warriors: Warfare and the Provincial Soldier on the New England Frontier, 1689-1748," tells the story of the early French wars along the Maine and New Hampshire borders and was published by New York University Press.

He is also the author of "Sacrifice of Self: Nahant and the Civil War," which received the Albert B. Corey Prize as well as awards from the American Association for State and Local History and the New England Museum Association.

All those making a reservation will receive a Zoom link to the program. There is no charge for this program, although donations to the museum are gratefully accepted.
