Benjamin Church in King William’s War

September 18, 2019

FREE

Hear Edward Lodi talk about his most recent book, Benjamin Church in King William’s War.

King William’s War (1689-1697) was the first in a series of bloody conflicts known collectively as the French and Indian Wars, in which England, France and their Native American allies vied for control over North America.

Although best known for his heroic exploits in the earlier King Philip’s War, Benjamin Church led five expeditions against the French and Natives into northern New England and New France. Edward Lodi recounts the story of those expeditions, for which Church became famous as the forefather of the Rangers.

Lodi will also talk about Hannah Dustan, the first woman in America to have a statue erected in her honor, the infamous raid against Schenectady, N.Y. and many other topics related to the war.

He welcomes questions during and after his talk; a book signing follows.
