Flying Camps in the Revolutionary War

Join us for our next event when Rebecca Price Janney presents “Northampton County Flying Camp”

Rebecca Price Janney’s newest books, a series of novels (3 now) about two people who live 250+ years apart, are joined by common experiences and a hometown. These are a result of her own family research about 10 years ago. In which she uncovered layers of ancestors and their stories, including a fascinating figure, a Revolutionary War colonel and Pennsylvania "big wig." Janney will tell the harrowing story of Colonel Peter Kichline and the Northampton County Flying Camp battalion that traveled north to fight in the Battle of Long Island with General George Washington.

Rebecca Price Janney is the award-winning author of twenty-two books, including her beloved Easton Series. A member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, she earned degrees in history from Lafayette College, Princeton Seminary, and Biblical Seminary. She’s a popular speaker at civic and patriotic organizations, historical societies, schools, libraries, churches, and synagogues, and appears regularly on radio.
