The Sixth Annual Handel-Krom Lecture in Hudson River Valley History presents Dr. James Kirby Martin, the Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen University Professor of History at the University of Houston and the Charles B. Ewing Visiting Professor of Military History at the United States Military Academy at West Point for the 2017-2018 academic year.
He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Hiram College and a Master of Arts and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Martin began his teaching career at Rutgers University, where he helped found the Papers of Thomas Edison project, before moving to the University of Houston in 1980. His areas of study include Early American history through the Revolution and American military history through the Civil War.
Martin is the author or editor of over a dozen books including "Forgotten Allies: The Oneida Indians and the American Revolution, Ordinary Courage: The Revolutionary War Adventures of Joseph Plumb Martin" and "Benedict Arnold, Revolutionary Hero: An American Warrior Reconsidered." Most recently he co-edited a collection titled, "Theaters of the American Revolution," which gives perspective on how the war flowed from region to region from 1775 to 1781. Martin’s talk will focus on "The Northern Theater," which he authored for the collection, to explore the many ways that the Hudson River enabled victory in the American Revolution.?
