John's lifelong passion for military history was the driving force to tell the largely untold story of George Washington's success in building a team of outstanding military leaders from the young clerks, shopkeepers, farmers, and sons of the landed gentry who fought in the Continental Army.
John will share the histories he uncovered about these men and their contributions to America's fight for freedom. Join us at the Rising Sun Inn for one, or save, and join us for all three. Admission for Friends of the Rising Sun Inn members is $12.00 for one or $30.00 for the three-book series. For non-member, admission is $15.00 and $40.00 for the series. John's books can be purchased through Amazon, and he will be available after the presentation for book-signing.
