Virtual Author Series featuring Stephen Brumwell

April 13, 2025

The Fort Ticonderoga Author Series features presentations by authors of books related to Colonial and Revolutionary War history.

Turncoat: Benedict Arnold and the Crisis of American Liberty traces Arnold’s journey from enthusiastic support of American independence to his spectacularly traitorous acts and narrow escape. Stephen Brumwell’s research leads to an unexpected conclusion: Arnold’s mystifying betrayal was driven by a staunch conviction that America’s best interests would be served by halting the bloodshed and reuniting the fractured British Empire. Brumwell joins us less than a month away from the 250th anniversary of Arnold’s and Ethan Allen’s historic capture of Fort Ticonderoga on May 10, 1775, to explore Arnold’s contributions to the early years of the American Revolution.

Stephen Brumwell is a writer and independent historian specializing in British-American military affairs of the eighteenth century. He received the George Washington Book Prize for his recent book, George Washington: Gentleman Warrior. He lives in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

 Your participation in these online programs through the Center for Digital History supports Fort Ticonderoga’s mission to preserve, educate, and provoke an active discussion about the past and its importance to present and future generations.
