Dr. Benjamin Church, Spy: A Case of Espionage
Presented by John Nagy
Dr. Benjamin Church was a respected medical man and civic leader in colonial Boston. Despite his eminence as a surgeon, many aspects of his life remain obscure. What stands out the most in his life is accusation of him being a traitor to the colonial cause by George Washington. Today, the question remains whether Dr. Church was actually working for the British and is still among the mysteries of the American Revolution. Presented in his newest book, John Nagy has scoured previously unacknowledged correspondence to reveal new evidence against the doctor. Join us to discover how this mystery ends and many finally be put to rest.
