Band of Giants Jack Kelly talked about his book, Band of Giants: the Amateur Soldiers Who won America’s independence, about the lack of military experience that marked the Continental Army. In his book, the author profiles people such as Henry Knox, a 25-year old bookseller with no combat experience entrusted with command of American artillery; pacifist Quaker Nathanael Greene, the Army’s youngest general; and Continental Army commander-in-chief George Washington, who referenced books on military tactics. Jack Kelly spoke at Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga Springs, New York. close
