Westborough: ‘Court-Martial of Paul Revere’ author Michael Greenburg at Tatnuck Bookseller

The Court Martial of Paul Revere coverWestborough – Michael M. Greenburg, the author of “The Court-Martial of Paul Revere, A Son of Liberty & America’s Forgotten Military Disaster,” will be at Tatnuck Bookseller Sunday, Nov. 2, from 1-3 p.m. The book is a riveting chronicle of Paul Revere’s only military service during the Revolution – a major, but disastrous episode in his life.

 

At the height of the American Revolution in 1779, Massachusetts launched the Penobscot expedition, a massive military and naval undertaking designed to force the British from the strategically important coast of Maine. What should have been an easy victory for the larger American force quickly descended into a quagmire of arguing, disobedience, and failed strategy. In the end not only did the British retain their stronghold, but the entire flotilla of American vessels was lost in what became the worst American naval disaster prior to Pearl Harbor.

 

In the aftermath, the already famous Lieutenant Colonel Paul Revere was charged by fellow officers with neglect of duty, disobeying orders, and cowardice. Though not formally condemned, he was still surrounded by rumors about his role in the disaster, and so he spent the next several years trying to recover his reputation.

 

Michael M. Greenburg is also the author of “Peaches and Daddy,” a story of the Roaring Twenties, the birth of tabloid media, and the courtship that captured the heart and imagination of the American public, and “The Mad Bomber of New York,” the extraordinary true story of the manhunt that paralyzed a city.

 

All are welcome to meet the author. Tatnuck Bookseller is located at 18 Lyman St., the Westborough Shopping Center.

Start: November 2, 2014 1:00 pm
