“Elias Boudinot IV: The Continental Army’s First Commissary General of Prisoners” lecture by Joseph E. Wroblewski

December 27, 2019 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

After the successful invasion of NYC and surrounding areas by the British during 1776 and the thousands of American prisoners taken, George Washington called upon Congress to set up a centralized authority to deal with the handling of prisoners of war. This presentation will detail the many problems that Boudinot encountered while he held this position coming from both the British and the Continental Congress. Lecture is held in the Community Room. Onsite and street parking available.
