Listen to the podcast of my interview about Unlikely General: "Mad" Anthony Wayne and the Battle for America on the Mike Slater Show on March 19, 2018 in San Diego.
What made Anthony Wayne an "unlikely general"?
He was not President Washington's first choice to lead the army against the Indians in 1792.
A womanizer, heavy drinker, and spend-thrift who had suffered a physical and mental breakdown fighting in the last year of the American Revolution, he had just been removed from Congress for voter fraud. But Washington took a chance on Wayne and the rest is history!
Here's one more blog I wrote about "Unlikely General" for the Yale University Press Blog.
Plus an essay on "Interrupted Odyssey" for the "What It Means To Be An American" maintained by Zocalo Public Square for the Smithsonian and Arizona State University.
