The Disaffected: Britain’s Occupation of Philadelphia During the American Revolution

The Disaffected.jpg

Evening Lecture presented by Aaron Sullivan*

In this lecture, Sullivan explores the British occupation of Philadelphia, chronicling the experiences of a group known to both Patriots and the British as “the disaffected”- people who were pursued, pressured, and at times persecuted, not because they chose the wrong side of the Revolution, but because they tried not to choose a side at all.
