Tentatively scheduled for 9:05am  Rhode Island Author , Robert A. Geake

will discuss his ne release,  " New England Citizen Soldiers"

Many of the leaders and heroes of the Revolutionary War are well known to most Americans. Lesser known are those unsung heroes or citizen soldiers who first enlisted with local militias before being assigned to units of the Continental Line and sent away to fight in states and regions far removed from their homes and families. In New England, these also included men of the sea who signed aboard privateers or became part of the Mariner brigades that became indispensable in navigating waterways and ferrying troops into position. It is also the larger story of their struggle to maintain their loyalty to their home states, property and family. Author and historian Robert Geake uncovers the untold story of ordinary citizens who became united in the cause for freedom.

Tentatively Scheduled for 9 am Author Terry L. Nau

Voices of the Vietnam War is an oral history told by the soldiers who fought, and others who were impacted by the fighting halfway around the world, most especially the wives and siblings who waited at home. This book listens to two people who were against the war and had to take their own philosophical stand, often against their own families and friends. The book features chapters personally written by three military veterans. Two wives tell the story of how they waited at home while their husbands fought in Vietnam, relying on letters and television news for information. Decorated combat officer David Christian is the strongest voice in the book, describing his unit’s war experiences and then detailing the loss of his brother Doug to Agent Orange-linked cancer. Christian became a leading advocate for veterans’ disability pensions and helped gain government approval for Agent Orange benefits. Vietnam War veteran Terry Nau wrote and edited this book, his fifth on the subject. He interviewed soldiers from his artillery unit, high school friends who went to war, and also convinced acquaintances to tell their own story in their own words.
