WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Sept. 17, 2019 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for George Washington's Westchester Gamble

Local author Richard Borkow will be available to sign copies


The White Plains Barnes & Noble is hosting a meet & greet and book signing with local author Richard Borkow on Thursday, September 19th from 3:00 p.m.—5:00 p.m. The author will be available to sign copies of George Washington's Westchester Gamble: The Encampment on the Hudson and the Trapping of Cornwallis.

During the summer of 1781, the armies of Generals Washington and Rochambeau were encamped in lower Westchester County at Dobbs Ferry, Ardsley, Hartsdale, Edgemont and White Plains. It was a time of military deadlock and grim prospects for the allied Americans and French. Washington recognized that a decisive victory was needed or America would never achieve independence. In August, he marched these soldiers to Virginia to face General Cornwallis and his redcoats. Washington risked all on this march. Its success required secrecy, and he prepared an elaborate deception to convince the British that Manhattan, not Virginia, was the target of the allied armies. Local historian Richard Borkow presents this exciting story of the Westchester encampment and Washington's great gamble that saved the United States.
