You are invited to The Princeton Battlefield Society’s annual Forgotten History symposium on May 18, at The David Library of the American Revolution (Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania) from 1:00 to 5:00 PM.
Keynote Speaker: Janet Uhler, author, lecturer and screenplay writer (http://janetuhlar.com). Janet will discuss NATHANIEL GREENE and why he has yet to receive appropriate recognition as well as a place of honor as a founding father. Greene has been called “the strategist of the American Revolution,” a forgotten title that does not offer a true picture of his importance.
Arthur Lefkowitz, who has written three award-winning titles, including BUSHNELL’S SUBMARINE, and serves on the Board of Governors of the American Revolution Round Table. Arthur will discuss Washington’s aides-de-camp and will draw connections between these aides and the subtle ties between Nathaniel Greene who followed Washington’s example and shared his beliefs about the role and responsibilities of aides.
Don Hagist, whose expertise includes British operations in Rhode Island, wives of British soldiers, and the service of the 22nd Regiment of Foot (the Cheshire Regiment) in America. Don will discuss the demographics of British soldiers and the men in a single regiment (their nationalities, ages, length of military service, occupations before joining the army and what happened to them after the war). He will examine a regiment and gradually focus on details for a few individual soldiers.
