Dr. Robert Watson, Lynn professor of American studies, is an award-winning author and media commentator who has published 40 books and hundreds of scholarly articles, chapters and essays on politics and history. His lastest book, The Ghost Ship of Brooklyn, tells the little-known story of the bloodiest struggle of the Revolutionary War, one fought by American prisoners-of-war aboard a wretched British prison ship.
