George Washington’s Indispensable Men
Date(s) - 03/07/2017
This lecture explores a group of fascinating men who worked behind the scenes to help win American independence. Largely unknown and forgotten, these unselfish, hard-working patriots served at Washingtons headquarters as volunteer aides-de-camp (personal assistants) and military secretaries. Their ranks included lawyers, doctors, artists, college students, businessmen and plantation owners. This presentation relates their accomplishments during the Revolutionary War and well into the 19th century. This lecture is based on the speakers recently published book, George Washingtons Indispensable Men: The 32 Aides-de-Camp Who Helped Win American Independence.
