Lecture and Curry Lunch: The American Revolution
Armchair Battlefield Tour – The American Revolution
A revolution? A rebellion? A civil war? A fight for liberty against an oppressive colonial power? Opportunism? A French ploy to obtain control of the West Indies? This talk will strip away the patriotic froth surrounding the events of 1775 – 1783 and examine the facts of the war, the personalities involved and the underlying causes of discontent.
The lecture is delivered by Major Gordon Corrigan MBE. Major Corrigan served in the 6th Gurkha Rifles and the Royal Gurkha Rifles. He is an acclaimed military historian who has published a number of books, and presented a number of TV series. He lectures widely, and conducts battlefield tours worldwide.
The Armchair Battlefield Tour is followed by a two-course curry lunch.
