Author Donald Williams Jr. will present his historical novel Eighteen for Mercy on Saturday, February 9th from 2 to 3PM.
Except from Donald Wiliam’s Website about the novel:
“As the American Revolution nears it’s ﬁnal days, the mixed-blood Chalfont siblings – Black Cloud, French Mary, and Stone Catcher- vowed revenge against the Washington County militia for the wanton slaughter of ninety-six Christian Moravian Indians—men, women, and children, at the town of Gnadenhutten. The British didn’t trust them. The American’s wanted them gone. All they wanted was to live in peace and worship their God. All sides kept a watchful eye on them – waiting to carry out their designs. In March 1782 as the crisis erupted, the Munsee Delaware war captain Black Cloud and his sister, French Mary, became embroiled in their own personal war – a blood feud that cried out to the heavens for revenge.”
There will be a discussion of the book by the author followed by a Q&A session. Books will be available for purchase at this event.
