The Fraunces Tavern Museum in New York City will host “The Defeat of the British Southern Strategy to Conquer America,” a virtual lecture with Kenneth Scarlett set for Thursday, March 16th.
In this lecture, Ken Scarlett will discuss the British Southern Strategy for conquering America and extinguishing the American Revolution. He will discuss the role of a quisling in the framing of their base strategy and how those plans were completely defeated culminating with the forced British evacuation from Charleston, South Carolina (Victory Day).
Scarlett will examine General Nathanael Greene’s post-Yorktown counterinsurgency campaign to oust British occupation forces from the Lower South and reinstall elected state governments; which proved to be the final lynchpins for King George III and Parliament to end their war-gone-global and relinquish sovereignty over the declared “United States.”
This program will begin at 6:30 pm and will be held both in person and via Zoom. Tickets $5 for in person attendance, free for museum members and virtual attendance. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
