Bookmarks will present Lecture Night in Camel City: The Retreat that Won the American Revolution at 7 p.m. July 6 at 634 W. Fourth St., No. 110, Winston-Salem.
Ed Southern, executive director of the NC Writers’ Network, will give a lecture about the American Revolution. During “The Race to the Dan,” the two armies raced each other across the North Carolina Piedmont in an effort that would lead to Cornwallis’ surrender at Yorktown. Though a retreat by the Continentals, the Race to the Dan would prove to be the undoing of Cornwallis’ army and the British “Southern strategy” to defeat the American rebellion.
