History Matters Lecture – General Nathanael Green in South Carolina – July 18

The Historic Charleston Foundation presents
History Matters Lecture – General Nathanael Greene in South Carolina
July 18 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Many history buffs know that Cornwallis surrendered to General Washington at Yorktown, VA in October 1781. But was that really the end of the Revolutionary War? What happened after that surrender until the eventual evacuation of Charleston 14 months later?  Join Historic Charleston Foundation Education Coordinator, Leigh Moring, as she discusses her book Nathanael Greene in South Carolina. Greene assumed command of the southern campaigns during the American Revolution following previous failed leadership in December 1780 and was charged with removing the British from the South. What came next was a series of little known battles and a key change in strategy. The lecture will be followed by a book signing.
