Jack Kelly

Jack Kelly is an award-winning author and historian. His new book "VALCOUR: The 1776 Campaign That Saved the Cause of Liberty" tells the neglected story of one of the most critical and suspense-filled campaigns of the Revolutionary War. That summer, patriots knew they had to stop an enemy invasion from Canada by any means necessary. Their success meant they would continue to fight for another year, setting up their breakthrough victory at Saratoga. Kelly’s "BAND OF GIANTS: The Amateur Soldiers Who Won America’s Independence" received the DAR History Medal. He is also the author of "THE EDGE OF ANARCHY," an account of the Pullman Strike of 1894; "HEAVEN'S DITCH", a cultural history of the Erie Canal; and "GUNPOWDER," an account of man’s first explosive. He has published five novels, and is a New York Foundation for the Arts fellow in Nonfiction Literature. He lives and works in New York's Hudson Valley.
