Watch my talk on The Other Trail of Tears: The Removal of the Ohio Indians at the Gaithersburg Book Festival on May 16, 2015.
Coming Soon: "Interrupted Odyssey:
Ulysses S. Grant and the American Indians"
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!
The second event will be a dinner at 6:30 PM with another talk on "Unlikely General" at 7:00 PM, also to be followed by a book signing.
More details on both events can be found at the Warren County Historical Museum Website.
