Author Dan Kinley of Common Courage: The Campaigns of the Revolutionary War Vetern, tells the fascinating story of his ancestor and Revolutionary War veteran Timothy Percival, who fought in both the French and Indian War and against the British in the American Revolution. Percival was part of a vital core of experienced men that held the nation’s fledgling army together; regular men from farming communities with a common bond of courage. This detailed account of his campaigns demonstrates how essential these men were to guiding the American forces in the War of Independence. Dan will appear in uniform and will have some equipment used by the soldiers to share. Sunday, February 24 @4pm at The Pinkney House, Rowayton Historical Society, 177 Rowayton Avenue.
