    Defiant Brides of the American Revolution

    How did the marriages to Benedict Arnold and Henry Knox change the lives and personal development of their brides, Peggy Shippen and Lucy Knox? Award-winning author and journalist Nancy Rubin Stuart will reveal the contradictory paths these two young women followed subsequent to their passionate marriages to patriotic men during the American Revolution and the early Federal era. Using historical correspondence and historical drawings and portraits, Stuart will shed light on how these defiant brides affected the course of the Revolution.
