Author Talk: Common Courage – Daniel Kinley

Thursday, April 5, 7-8:30 pm
Author Dan Kinley has had an interest in history since he was a boy. He received a BA in history from the College of Wooster in Ohio and in the 1980s, he became involved in historical re-enactments, deepening his understanding of the daily struggle early Revolutionary War fighters endured. Dan has elected to tell the story of these courageous men through the tale of one Timothy Percival, an ordinary farmer from Connecticut who experienced four campaigns in the wilderness of northern New York during the French and Indian War. With 15 peaceful years as a farmer following the war, he volunteered to fight again during America’s War for Independence. Dan will discuss the story of Timothy Percival dressed as he would for a historical re-enactment. Q&A following the talk. Books available for purchase and signing. Registration is recommended.
