Lee Safety Complex
We are delighted to present a program about Major General John Sullivan by our guest speaker Douglas MacLennan of Durham. General Sullivan was a key figure in the 1774 raid on Fort William and Mary in New Castle. He led troops in the invasion of Quebec, at the Battle of Long Island, the Battle of Trenton and the Battles of Brandywine and Germantown. In 1779 General Washington selected Sullivan to lead the Expedition against the Iroquois in upstate New York. Sullivan twice served as a delegate to the Continental Congress.
