Hear from Niall O'Dowd, author of George Washington and the Irish: Incredible Stories of the Irish, Spies, Soldiers, and Workers Who Helped Free America. This new book is the untold story of the vital role the Irish played in the American Revolution –not just on the battlefield but also in the field hospitals and in the framing of the Declaration of Independence. O'Dowd takes readers on a journey to explore the personal relationships between some of these men and women with the first president of the United States.
