Talk by Russell Shorto, author of Revolution Song
November 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The North Jersey American Revolution Round Table Meeting at the auditorium at Morristown National Historical Park, 30 Washington Place, Morristown presents a talk by author Russell Shorto on his most recent book, Revolution Song on Nov 8 at 7pm.
Author of the acclaimed history The Island at the Center of the World, in his new book, Russell Shorto takes us back to the founding of the American nation, drawing on diaries, letters and autobiographies to flesh out six lives that cast the era in a fresh new light. They include an African man who freed himself and his family from slavery, a rebellious young woman who abandoned her abusive husband to chart her own course and a certain Mr. Washington, who was admired for his social graces but harshly criticized for his often-disastrous military strategy.
