Embattled Farmers: Revolutionary Soldiers from Lincoln, MA
In his meticulously researched award-winning book, Embattled Farmers, Richard Wiggin has documented the diverse experiences of
256 ordinary men from one Massachusetts town who served on both sides of the Revolutionary
War. Mr. Wiggin will discuss the perspectives of these men - farmers, merchants, African-American slaves and others who held a variety of military positions - and the stories that give a human face to the War of Independence.
