On May 26, 1780 the British attacked St. Louis and Cahokia with a force of 1,000 Native American warriors and British Canadian fur traders. Stephen L. Kling, Jr., will tell the the story of this largely unknown chapter of American Revolutionary War history which is covered in his book, "The Battle of St. Louis, the Attack on Cahokia, and the American Revolution in the West." Adults and teens.

On May 26, 1780 the British launched a simultaneous attack against St. Louis and Cahokia with a force of 1,000 Native American warriors and British Canadian fur traders led by British Indian Department officers. These attacks were part of a grand plan to conquer the entire Mississippi River valley and were one of the largest campaigns, geographically, of the entire American Revolutionary War. Both towns were successfully defended due to advance intelligence and the construction of defenses, though the number of casualties was exceptionally high. Presenter Stephen L. Kling, Jr., will tell the the story of this largely unknown chapter of American Revolutionary War history which is covered in his book, "The Battle of St. Louis, the Attack on Cahokia, and the American Revolution in the West." Kling will also discuss a forthcoming documentary and museum exhibit.
