Old fashioned letter press for Scouting event

Good morning!

I need help with an upcoming Boy Scout event. I am looking for someone with an old press to help teach 700+ Boy Scouts about printing during the Revolutionary War.

We have a re-enactment team of Colonial and British soldiers, a hospital, mess hall and craftsmen of all kinds.

Now, we need a printer as the printed word was so important back then.

Please let me know if anyone has any information about such a person and or press in the New England area.

Hi Brian,

You should contact Gary at Lessons on Liberty:


This is definitely his era, and he’s a printer, too!
