Rock Ford Plantation will kick-off its 2018 lecture series by welcoming David Price who will be presenting a lecture based upon his book “Rescuing the Revolution.” His lecture will focus on the heroic feats of people less well known to history who remain the “unsung heroes” of the pivotal battles of Trenton and Princeton that took place from December 25, 1776 to January 3, 1777. Price’s book contains a chapter on Rock Ford’s General Edward hand. After the lecture, Price will have copies of his book available for purchase and signing.
