Author Robert MayersHistorian and author, Bob Mayers will speak at our fall meeting on the October 20, 2016, 7PM at the DeCorso Center, located at 15 East Fourth Street, New Providence, NJ.

Over the years, vastly different opinions have been offered by historians concerning the true nature of the most essential element of the War for Independence–the common foot soldier. For most of America’s history, little was known about the identity of these men, why they fought and how the war affected their lives. Yet the men of the Continental Army were the people most responsible for achieving America’s independence.

Who exactly were they and what inspired them to endure appalling hardships during the most critical time in American history?yankeedoodle-coverart-600x900

Bob will also be available to sign his newest book, Searching for Yankee Doodle: Washington’s Soldiers in the American Revolution. Learn more about Bob at www.revolutionarydetective.com.
