This Week on Dispatches: Todd Braisted on Discovering Barnard E. Griffiths, Queen’s Ranger, Emancipated Slave

Dispatches can now be easily accessed on the JAR main menu. Host Brady Crytzer discusses historian Todd Braisted’s remarkable discovery of a slave who was emancipated by John Graves Simcoe, commander of the Loyalist regiment, Queen’s Rangers, who went on to distinguish himself in battle, and ended up as a free man with a pension in England.

As your host says, “Sit back, relax, and enjoy the interview. . . .”

New episodes of Dispatches are available for free every Sunday evening (Eastern United States Time) on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, and the JAR Dispatches web site.

Thank you as always for listening!
