Henry Defendorff: A Very Intelligent Man
Thursday, October 5, 2023 07:00 PM
Fort Montgomery State Historic Site
If New York's Henry Defendorff was not a spy during the American Revolution, he was the closest thing to it. In this evening lecture, Author/Historian Phil Weaver will relay Defendorff's wartime adventures and his life as an officer of the Continental army. We think you will find it to be an intriguing story that asks more questions than it answers! PLEASE NOTE: The Thursday Night Speaker Series is Proudly Sponsored by the Fort Montgomery Battle Site Association. Seating is by reservation only. Call (845) 446-2134 to Register. Suggested Donation: $5, FMBSA Members $3. To Reserve a Seat, Call 845-446-2134. More information
