About the Event

Join us as we discuss a very interesting and active time of the American Revolution. While Sir Henry Clinton had taken the bulk of the British Army south to lay siege to Charles Town, South Carolina, his subordinate, Lieutenant General Wilhelm Knyphausen led a masterful defense of New York City in what was commonly referred to as the most severe winter "in human memory."

Todd W. Braisted is an independent author & researcher of the American Revolution with over 50 published titles to his credit. He currently serves as a history advisor to Crossroads of the American Revolution and is a member of the State of New Jersey's 250th Anniversary Advisory Commission.

This event will be hosted VIRTUALLY via WebEx. Those who register will receive a link upon registration. The session will also be live-streamed on the Dey Mansion Facebook page at www.facebook.com/deymansion.
