Author and historian John Buchanan discusses The First (and Worst!) Six Months of American Independence on Wednesday, July 2, at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St. Buchanan, author of The Road to Valley Forge, will discuss the disastrous string of American defeats that followed the signing of the Declaration of Independence and how the battlefield reverses ironically enabled Washington to win the Revolutionary War. A former archivist at Cornell University and former chief registrar of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Buchanan is also the author of The Road to Guilford Courthouse: The American Revolution in the Carolinas and Jackson’s Way: Andrew Jackson and the People of the Western Waters. Copies of Buchanan’s books will be available for sale courtesy of Barnes & Noble on the Plaza, and the author will sign copies purchased during the event. A 6 p.m. reception precedes the event.
