Lecture Series: “Rescuing the Revolution” by David Price

May 24 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Join us as David Price presents a lecture based on his book, “Rescuing the Revolution.” The victories achieved by the American cause during the events from December 25, 1776 to January 3, 1777 in the war for independence from Great Britain were the product of bold and imaginative leadership on the part of George Washington and his fellow generals, miscalculation by the enemy, and the fortuitous effects of weather as it related to the movement of troops and battlefield conditions. But those storied triumphs were also due to the heroic feats of people less well known to history who remain the “unsung heroes” behind our nation’s struggle for independence during its darkest days.  The book contains a chapter on Rock Ford’s General Edward Hand.

After the lecture, David Price will have copies of his book available for purchase and signing.
