 Henry Beekman Livingston, Black Sheep of The Livingston Clan  by Geoff Benton

 

Henry Beekman Livingston was already well on his way to being the black sheep of the illustrious Livingston family before the Revolutionary War erupted. The war seemed to be his chance to make right, and he experienced a great deal of success on the battlefield eventually earning the rank of Colonel of the 4th New York Regiment. Unfortunately personal problems led to his resignation from the army, a disastrous marriage  and eventually complete isolation from his family.

Geoff Benton is a historian in upstate New York. He received a master’s degree in American History from SUNY Albany and has been researching the Revolutionary War in the Hudson River Valley for several years. Benton is currently employed at a New York State Historic Site. In his free time he enjoys visiting museums and historic sites with his wife and young daughter.
