Nancy Rubin Stuart talked about her book, Defiant Brides: The Untold Story of Two Revolutionary-Era Women and the Radical Men They Married, in which she recounts the lives of Peggy Shippen and Lucy Flucker. In her book, the author recalls how each woman defied her upbringings and reports on the active roles each played in her husband’s exploits during the American Revolution. Peggy Shippen was married to Benedict Arnold and promoted Arnold’s image as he plotted against Washington’s Army, and Lucy Flucker, the wife of General Henry Knox, Washington’s chief of artillery, moved with her husband to multiple camps throughout the war. Nancy Rubin Stuart spoke at the Fraunces Tavern in New York City. close
