Rhode Island's William Barton captured Major General Richard Prescott, commander of the British garrison occupying Newport, from a Portsmouth farm house (now known as Prescott Farm) in July 1777. Barton's raid was an outstanding special operation of the Revolutionary War, and still ranks as one of the greatest in American military history. Come hear Christian McBurney give a lecture on his new book, Kidnapping the Enemy: the Special Operations to Capture Generals Charles Lee and Richard Prescott. Mr. McBurney will have copies of his new book for sale.

This lecture will be presented at the Portsmouth Free Public Library, 2658 East Main Road, Portsmouth, RI. This program is free of charge but space is limited. Call 401.683.9457 for reservations.

This lecture is offered in collaboration with the Newport Restoration Foundation, Portsmouth Historical Society and Portsmouth Free Public Library.
