About Fred Rossi:
Fred T. Rossi, a writer and journalist for over 30 years, has extensively researched some of the lesser-known stories about interesting people and unusual events from his home state’s history. A resident of Scotch Plains, this is Fred’s first book.
Above Image: Rossi lays claim to his own footnote in history, weaving the tale of his great-great-great-great-great-great grandfather, (six Greats) General Nathaniel Heard. A colonel in the rebel militia seeking independence from the British, it was Heard who on June 17, 1776, just before the Constitutional Convention, arrested William Franklin, the Royal Governor of New Jersey and the son of Benjamin Franklin, for treason at The Proprietary House in Perth Amboy. ” THANK GOD” MR. LOCAL HISTORY says!
