AUTHOR MICHAEL GREENBURG, “THE COURT MARTIAL OF PAUL REVERE”
February 20, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$8
Michael Greenburg will discuss his book, The Court-Martial of Paul Revere: A Son of Liberty and America’s Forgotten Military Disaster, on Friday, February 20 at 3 PM. Please take note of the special day and time for this lecture.
In the finger-pointing that followed the debacle, Lieutenant Colonel Paul Revere, commissioned as the expedition’s artillery commander, was shockingly charged by fellow officers with neglect of duty, disobeying orders, and cowardice. Though he was not formally condemned by the court of inquiry, rumors still swirled around Boston concerning his role in the disaster, and so Revere spent the next several years actively pursuing a court-martial, in an effort to resuscitate the one thing he valued above all – his reputation.
