In August 1776, the month after America’s Continental Congress had formally declared independence from Britain, George Washington’s troops had been outmanned and outmaneuvered. Fortunately for the young nation, a series of desperate charges by 400 men in the 1st Maryland Regiment, famously known as the “Immortal 400,” enabled the Continental army to fight on. In Washington’s Immortals: The Untold Story of an Elite Regiment Who Changed the Course of the Revolution, O’Donnell revives the forgotten story of these remarkable merchants, tradesmen, indentured servants, and free blacks. A book signing will follow the presentation.
Presented by the North Carolina Society of the Cincinnati.
