Local historian and author John Baxter joins us to examine the life of Richard Stockton in the months immediately following the signing of the Declaration of Independence, some of the darkest days of the American Revolution.

Mr. Baxter will present his research on Stockton’s work as a member of the Continental Congress; his courageous journey to upstate New York, the northern theater of the war, during the fall of 1776; and the extent to which he laid the groundwork for the victory at Saratoga a year later.

The question on whether Richard Stockton deserves to be remembered as an unsung hero of the Revolution will be entertained.
