Thursday, September 13th – 7 P.M.

While thousands of British soldiers spent time in New York during the American Revolution, personal details are known about only a few. Historian Don Hagist’s lecture will examine the career of a soldier from the 57th Regiment of Foot who served in the attack on Fort Montgomery in 1777. From the time he enlisted to the time he left the army over ten years later, he participated in military campaigns all over the eastern seaboard. The audience will hear some remarkable information about him that turned up years later.
