VIRTUAL Lecture "George Washington's Nemesis: The Outrageous Treason and Unfair Court-Martial of Major General Charles Lee"

This event will be held virtually via Zoom in partnership with the Friends of Washington Crossing Park; it will NOT be face-to-face in the park.  Log -in information will be immediately sent upon registration.  Please check your "spam" folder if you do not receive the email.

Author Christian McBurney will discuss his new book George Washington’s Nemesis: The Outrageous Treason and Unfair Court-Martial of Major General Charles Lee during the Revolutionary War.   Original documents (some newly discovered) were used to combine two dramatic stories involving the military law of treason and court-martials, creating a balanced view of the American Revolution’s most fascinating personality.

Mr. McBurney has appeared on CSPAN’s Book TV, and he has spoken to numerous organizations, including the National Archives, Massachusetts Historical Society, Rhode Island Historical Society, Newport Historical Society, Naval War College Museum, U.S. Army War College, Society of the Cincinnati, major American Revolutionary War conferences, and numerous American Revolution Round Tables.
