Betts Jr, William W. - BOMBARDIER JOHN HARRIS AND THE RIVERS OF THE REVOLUTION - Heritage Books - ISBN# 0788433792 - BRAND NEW Softcover - 422pp - Index - For almost the entire duration of the American Revolution, Bombardier John Harris of Salem, New Jersey, served in the rebel artillery forces. His animated recollections, carefully preserved by his descendants, tell of his participation in six major battles, countless skirmishes, two river campaigns, and the recovery of Philadelphia. The young artilleryman served one of the two cannon bombarding the Chew Mansion, he suffered Valley Forge, he was with Sullivan on the Susquehanna, and with George Rogers Clark in the disastrous expedition down the Ohio. He enjoyed associations with many of the most prominent figures of the Revolution. His life after the war, on two islands of the Delaware River, is here too. All of this, and much more, comes to life in this latest chronicle of the War for Independence. This book includes seventy-six impressive images of battle scenes, of officers, and of Indians. Two appendices are attached: "The Truth about Molly Pitcher" and "Lafayette Returns." Copious notes, filled with a wealth of valuable information, are provided. An index to full names, subjects and places augments the text - Publisher's List Price = $41 - Our Price - $38.50

Boyle, Joseph - FIRE CAKE AND WATER : THE CONNECTICUT INFANTRY AT THE VALLEY FORGE ENCAMPMENT- Clearfield Publishing - ISBN# 0806349131 - BRAND NEW Softcover - 232PP - While the six-month encampment of the Continental Army at Valley Forge in 1777-1778 has been part of America's folklore for generations," author Joseph Boyle writes in his Introduction, "most of the men who served there have remained anonymous. The names of over 30,000 men of all ranks appear on the surviving monthly muster and payroll records. This compilation is the initial effort to recognize some of these heroes of the Revolutionary War. The author strips away legend from fact in recounting the dreadful encampment of Washington's army at Valley Forge that began in December 1777 and ended in June of the following year. It is here that we learn how fate conspired to move a number of Connecticut regiments from the Hudson Highlands of New York to the environs of Philadelphia, as well as what would become of them after Valley Forge. The heart of the volume, of course, consists of an alphabetical list of some 4,000 Connecticut soldiers abstracted from Revolutionary War muster and pay rolls at the National Archives. Each patriot is identified by name, rank, date and term of enlistment or commission, name of regiment and company, and a variety of supporting details, such as date of furlough or discharge, when wounded, when and where promoted, etc. In support of the abstracts the author has prepared a detailed glossary of terms found in the rosters, an explanatory list of locations referred to in the entries, and a lengthy, up-to-date bibliography on the topic.- $26.45

(AmGenerals) Broadwater, Robert P. - AMERICAN GENERALS OF THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR - A BIOGRAPHICAL DICTIONARY - McFarland Publishing - ISBN# 9780786469055 - BRAND NEW Full-Sized Laminated Softcover - 214pp - 49 photos, appendices, notes, bibliography, index - At the outbreak of the American Revolution in 1775, the colonies faced the daunting task of creating the first American army, and its requisite leadership, capable of combating a global superpower whose standing army and generalship were among the finest in the world. Built largely from state and local militias, the colonial army performed surprisingly well and produced a number of fine generals. Some were experienced before the war, like George Washington of the Virginia Militia and the British-born Horatio Gates, while others were as green as the soldiers they led. This book presents basic biographical information about America's first generals in the Revolutionary War. Included are all generals of the Continental Army, along with those commissioned in the colonies' militias. Drawn from primary sources, including death and census records, records of the Continental Congress, and contemporary writings, each biographical sketch provides date and place of birth, prewar education and occupation, wartime service, date and place of death, and place of burial. Portraits of each general are included where available, and appendices display important statistics, including comparative ages; occupations; officers lost by death, resignation, murder or changing loyalty; and states or countries of origin. - Publisher's List Price =$25 - Our Price - $21

Brown, Lloyd A. / Howard H. Peckham. - REVOLUTIONARY WAR JOURNALS OF HENRY DEARBORN, 1775-1783 - Heritage Books - BRAND NEW CD Rom - Henry Dearborn served as an officer in the American Revolution from April, 1775, until the reduction of the New Hampshire line on March 1, 1783. He fought at Bunker Hill and marched on the expedition to Quebec. He was active in the Burgoyne campaign, and joined Washington at Valley Forege. He attached with the advance division at Monmouth and did garrison duty in Connecticut. In 1779, he marched on the expedition under Sullivan against the Indians, then re-joined Washington and took part in the Yorktown campaign. Dearborn kept a journal during the entire war, with the exception of a six-month period in 1782 when he was engaged in a special mission that took him away from the army. The six parts in this volume constitutes one of the few complete, eye-witness accounts of the American side of the Revolution. These are the complete journals of Henry Dearborn, which were transcribed and printed exactly as he wrote them, insofar as is possible to type. His punctuation, spelling, abbreviations, run on sentences have all been retained, with the occasional brackets supplying missing letters and punctuation to facilitate reading. Arranged chronologically, each journal is introduced separately to supply the background of the campaign or operation in which Dearborn was engaged. Also included are a biographical sketch, many useful annotations, 3 maps, a name and place index, and a bibliography. Henry Dearborn's impersonal and objective style coupled with the advantages of his rank, which enabled him to learn the movements and objectives of the Army and produce one of the most engaging first-hand accounts of the American Revolution. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent - $14.50

Those states were Hesse-Cassel, Hesse-Hanau, Brunswick, Waldeck, Ansbach-Bayreuth, and Anhalt-Zerbst.

In addition, the unit traveled to Jamaica, Cuba, Mexico, and Nova Scotia. This book contains brief biographies of every man who served from the eighteenth-century German principality of Waldeck as members of the 3rd English-Waldeck Regiment. There were 1225 men in the unit of which 470 have been identified as native Waldeckers.

Cecere, Mike - CAPTAIN THOMAS POSEY AND THE 7TH VIRGINIA REGIMENT - Heritage Books - ISBN# 0788435841 -BRAND NEW Softcover - 170pp - The 7th Virginia Regiment was one of six additional battalions raised in the colony in early 1776. It played a prominent role in driving Lord Dunmore and his loyalist forces off of Gwynn's Island and out of Virginia. Captain Thomas Posey commanded a rifle company in the 7th regiment and chronicled the engagement in his journal. It is also through Posey's experience-detached with his rifle company to Daniel Morgan's rifle corps-that we see the 7th Virginia's contribution at Saratoga, Whitemarsh, Valley Forge, and the New York frontier. In 1779, Major Posey participated in the successful night assault of Stony Point. The rest of the 7th Virginia saw action of its own at Brandywine, Germantown, Whitemarsh, Monmouth, and Charleston, where it surrendered with the bulk of the Virginia continental line. Posey was not with the 7th Virginia at Charleston so he continued to serve until the end of the war in Virginia, Georgia, and South Carolina. In 1782, he led the vanguard of General Nathaniel Greene's army into Charleston. In 1783, after seven distinguished years of service, Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Posey resigned his commission and returned to private life - Publisher's List Price =$22.50 - Our Price - $21.50
(Useful) Cecere, Mike - THEY ARE INDEED A VERY USEFUL CORPS - Heritage Books - ISBN# 0788441418 -BRAND NEW Softcover - 230pp - Index - Notes - Biblio - Maps - Rosters - The story of America's riflemen in the Revolutionary War begins with their formation in 1775. First person accounts of their recruitment, long march, and encampment at Boston, introduce readers to the flamboyant and sometimes unruly nature of riflemen. Gripping eyewitness accounts of Benedict Arnold's march and attack on Quebec and of the battles of Long Island, Harlem Heights, Throg's Neck, Fort Washington, Trenton, Princeton, and Brandywine, highlight the unique abilities of riflemen and their important role in the war. Nowhere is this role more evident than in the American victory at Saratoga. First hand accounts of the battle provide a detailed image of the fight and the crucial part Daniel Morgan's riflemen played. The importance of riflemen is also evident in their service on the frontier of New York and in the southern battles of King's Mountain and Cowpens, all of which are chronicled by participants. The numerous primary accounts of riflemen in the war help readers better understand and appreciate the service of these men and may cause them to conclude, as General Washington did in 1776, that the riflemen "are indeed a very useful corps." - Publisher's List Price =$30 - Our Price - $28

DeMond, Robert O. - THE LOYALISTS IN NORTH CAROLINA DURING THE REVOLUTION - Clearfield Publishing - ISBN# 0806308397 - BRAND NEW Softcover - 286pp - Indexed - Until the publication of this book there was little recognition of North Carolina's outstanding contribution to the Loyalist cause during the Revolution. This is somewhat surprising since North Carolina probably had a greater number of Loyalists in proportion to its population than did any other colony. DeMond's groundbreaking work in this area of Revolutionary studies brings together all the available source material and identifies great numbers of these heretofore little known Loyalists. To the genealogist the Appendices in the back of the book will doubtless hold the greatest interest, for herein are found (1) lists of soldiers and civilians who supported the Crown throughout the Revolution; (2) lists of Loyalists who suffered land confiscation; (3) lists of Loyalists who made application to Great Britain for compensation for loss of office or property; and (4) lists of North Carolina Loyalists who received pensions from Great Britain. This definitive work leaves little to speculation concerning the history or genealogy of Loyalists in North Carolina - $29

This history documents Knox's precise route--dubbed the Henry Knox Trail--and chronicles the evolution of an ordinary Indian path into a fur corridor, a settlement trail, and eventually a war road. By recounting the growth of this important but under appreciated thoroughfare, this study offers critical insight into a vital Revolutionary supply route - Publisher's List Price =$55 - Our Price - $51

Not as renowned is the city's equally vital role during the Revolution. Through the port came news, essential supplies, and critical materials for the Continental Army. Both sides contended for the city and both sides occupied it at different times. Its merchant-based economy created a hotbed of dissension over issues of trade and taxes before the Revolution, and the presence of numerous Loyalists among Whigs vying for independence generated considerable tension among civilians. Based on more than 100 eyewitness accounts and other primary sources, this volume chronicles the fascinating story of Wilmington and the Lower Cape Fear during the Revolution.. - Publisher's List Price =$45 - Our Price - $41.95

(Miracle) Ferling, John - ALMOST A MIRACLE : THE AMERICAN VICTORY IN THE WAR OF INDEPENDENCE - Oxford Univ Press - ISBN# 9780195382921-BRAND NEW Softcover- 679pp - Notes - Biblio - Index - Illustrations - Maps - Extra Postage for Overseas Orders Due to Size! - Almost a Miracle offers an illuminating portrait of America's triumph, offering vivid descriptions of all the major engagements, from the first shots fired on Lexington Green to the surrender of General Cornwallis at Yorktown, revealing how these battles often hinged on intangibles such as leadership under fire, heroism, good fortune, blunders, tenacity, and surprise. The author paints sharp-eyed portraits of the key figures in the war, including General Washington and other American officers and civilian leaders. Some do not always measure up to their iconic reputations, including Washington himself. Others, such as the quirky, acerbic Charles Lee, are seen in a much better light than usual. The book also examines the many faceless men who soldiered, often for years on end, braving untold dangers and enduring abounding miseries. The author explains why they served and sacrificed, and sees them as the forgotten heroes who won American independence. Ferling's narrative is also filled with compassion for the men who comprised the British army and who, like their American counterparts, struggled and died at an astonishing rate in this harsh war. Nor does Ferling ignore the naval war, describing dangerous patrols and grand and dazzling naval actions. Finally, Almost a Miracle takes readers inside the legislative chambers and plush offices of diplomats to reveal countless decisions that altered the course of this war. The story that unfolds is at times a tale of folly, at times one of appalling misinformation and confusion, and now and then one of insightful and dauntless statesmanship - Our Price - $19.95

Fisher, Carol B. Smith - REV. SETH NOBLE: A REVOLUTIONARY WAR SOLDIER'S PROMISE OF AMERICA AND THE FOUNDING OF BANGOR, MAINE AND COLUMBUS, OHIO - Heritage Books - ISBN 9780788450495 - BRAND NEW Softcover - Index - 222 pp - This is the comprehensive biography of Reverend Seth Noble famous preacher, patriot and pioneer founding father. With the discovery and transcription of one of Rev. Seth Noble's earliest sermons (1774), we find that he believed the American Revolution to be God's plan to bring a global reformation to the world. He firmly believed that America was God's true Promised Land. This early sermon preserves a place for Seth Noble in Revolutionary War history; he publicly preached American independence prior to our beloved Virginians: Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson. Throughout New England and Nova Scotia, his cry "Better die than Submit!" launched his Revolutionary War service. He braved treason and lived with a price on his head, all for his beliefs in "this glorious cause." After the war, the reality of forming a new nation brought hardships we cannot fully comprehend today. Included in this book, is a deposition clearly identifying a surprisingly well-known individual as a British spy, new information on Washington's famous crossing of the Delaware, the 1798 shipwreck of the Bangor-built schooner (Susannah) with a passenger list including the children of important Revolutionary War heroes, and a brief Noble genealogy. Seth Noble named Bangor for a popular Revolutionary War hymn tune; early sheet music and musical history of this tune is studied in depth. Seth Noble was also the first minister to Columbus, Ohio and researchers will appreciate the inclusion of Ohio land grants, maps, documents, and early history. Our early history is not dead nor is it completely in the past. It is a part of our American heritage that must be nurtured with continued understanding and appreciation for those who made our American dream possible. This book is a must have for those interested in early Maine, Ohio, and New Brunswick history; and indeed, for anyone interested in this time period of early American nation-building. An index to names, places and subjects completes this work - $23.95

Loprieno, Don - THE ENTERPRISE IN CONTEMPLATION: THE MIDNIGHT ASSAULT OF STONEY POINT - Heritage Books - ISBN# 0788425749 - BRAND NEW Softcover - Published on the eve of the 225th anniversary of the battle of Stony Point, The Enterprise in Contemplation recounts one of the most dramatic and least known episodes of the Revolutionary War-the midnight assault of formidable British fortifications by the American Corps of Light Infantry, led by General Anthony Wayne, and armed only with unloaded muskets and fixed bayonets. The book is the first full description of Wayne's attack on the Hudson River stronghold in more than a hundred years, and helps explain, through the use of primary source material, how a garrison of more than 500 experienced troops, protected by fifteen cannon, the Royal Navy, and another fort less than a mile away, was captured in less than thirty minutes. As it relates the story of one of the most daring military exploits in the eight-year struggle that marked the longest conflict ever fought on American soil, The Enterprise in Contemplation explains the American strategy, examines the flawed British defensive plan as well as the actions and locations of the beleaguered defenders, and is rich in detail and documentation. It is a well-told tale of two armies clashing by night, and alive with what has been called the human face of battle-ordinary people reacting to extraordinary circumstances with bravery, valor, and determination - Publisher's List Price = $33.50 - Our Price - $31
Lossing, Benson J. - PICTORIAL FIELD BOOK OF THE REVOLUTION - Or, Illustrations, By Pen And Pencil, Of The History, Biography, Scenery, Relics, And Traditions Of The Last War For American Independence - Heritage Books - ISBN# 0788432613 - BRAND NEW Book on CD Rom - Although the story of the American Revolution has been well and often told, Mr. Lossing strives to present a more thorough history of the character and situation of the localities and of the men identified with the Revolution. He felt that "the men of old were fast fading away, and that relics associated with their trials and triumphs would soon be covered up forever." As a result, he took a journey of more than 8,000 miles and visited every important place made memorable by the events of the war, in the hope that a record of his pilgrimage, interwoven with the facts of past history, would provide a worthy reading experience for his readers. He also provided a detailed list of illustrations in each volume for the hundreds of engravings provided within the pages and a subject, place and fullname index for easy access to information. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book.

Lowell, Edward J. - THE HESSIANS AND THE OTHER GERMAN AUXILIARIES OF GREAT BRITAIN IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR - Clearfield Publishing - ISBN# 0806351527 - BRAND NEW Softcover - 328pp - Nearly 30,000 German mercenaries fought on the British side during the American Revolution and participated in virtually every major engagement of the war. Although these German auxiliaries came from six different German states, they are commonly known as Hessians because the vast majority came from the principality of Hesse-Cassel. After the war, approximately 7,000 German soldiers remained in North America, becoming the progenitors of many thousands of North Americans living today. Edward J. Lowell's The Hessians and the Other German Auxiliaries of Great Britain in the Revolutionary War, one of the earliest histories of the German auxiliary troops, is a landmark work that presents a comprehensive record of the German role in the American Revolution from the German perspective. After describing the political situation in Hesse and the treaties that induced the German soldiers to fight for the British, Lowell uses original German accounts of almost every battle from 1776 to the end of the war to create a picture of what sort of people the auxiliaries were, and what impression America and the Americans made on them. This book will be of great interest to the many researchers in the United States and Canada whose ancestors were German auxiliary soldiers from the Revolutionary era - $27.50

Mather, Frederic Grrgory - THE REFUGEES OF 1776 FROM LONG ISLAND TO CONNECTICUT - Clearfield Publishing - ISBN# 0806304952 -BRAND NEW Softcover - 1204 pages - Following the Battle of Long Island (August 27, 1776), more than 5,000 refugees fled Long Island and New York City for the security of Connecticut. The account of their flight and subsequent adventures, their biographies and genealogies, and the history of New York in the Revolution form the main subject of this giant work. Its 1,204 closely documented pages, 886 illustrations, and 20,000-name index furnish the historian with exhaustive and fascinating reference material. Contrary to some popularly held opinions, the refugees were not Tories; many of them saw service with the militia and the Continental Army, and their service records are included in the text along with a complete list of the Long Island Militia and the Long Island census for 1776 - $89.50

Mr. Paul Wentworth Linebarger desired to create sections of this society in France. In order to do so, it was necessary to reconstitute the lists of the French soldiers and sailors who took part in the war for American independence. A commission was created to search the archives in France, the national archives and the archives of the ministry of war and recreate these lists. This volume, written primarily in French with some English translations, presents these lists as well as historical background into the relationship between France and America during this time period.

With revolution imminent, Britain set about populating its two new colonies of East and West Florida with loyal British Tories, ultimately turning St. Augustine into a southern American headquarters for British interests. This volume details the British occupation of colonial Florida immediately before and during the American Revolution with emphasis on the effect this possession had on the course of the war. Beginning with a brief summary of Spanish history, it takes a look at the relative colonial positions of Spain and Britain with regard to the Americas during the pre-revolutionary period. The Georgia-Florida border dispute, the invasion of East Florida and the eventual return of the Spaniards are also discussed. Finally, an appendix details St. Augustine buildings from the revolutionary period which are still standing today - Publisher's List Price = $35 -Our Price - $32

Reiss, Oscar - MEDICINE AND THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION : HOW DISEASES AND THEIR TREATMENTS AFFECTED THE COLONIAL ARMY - McFarland Publishing - ISBN# 0786403381 - BRAND NEW Laminated Softcover - 278pp - Index - Biblio - Notes - Nearly nine times as many died from diseases during the American Revolution as did from wounds. Poor diet, inadequate sanitation and sometimes a lack of basic medical care caused such diseases as dysentery, scurvy, typhus, smallpox and others to decimate the ranks. Scurvy was a major problem for both the British and American navies, while venereal diseases proved to be a particularly vexing problem in New York. Respiratory diseases, scabies and other illnesses left nearly 4,000 colonial troops unable to fight when George Washington's troops broke camp at Valley Forge in June 1778. From a physician's perspective, this is a unique history of the American Revolution and how diseases impacted the execution of the war effort. The medical histories of Washington and King George III are also provided - Publisher's List Price = $39.95 - Our Price - $36

In light of modern travel and technology, it is difficult to imagine the perilous two-month journey across the Atlantic to America that was just the beginning of the hardships, dangers, and fears to be experienced by these eighteenth-century German soldiers. The 1776 occupation of Newport, troop movements, raids and incursions, the Treaty of Paris, the 1778 siege of Newport, the Battle of Rhode Island, and much more are examined in detail. - Publisher's List Price = $25 - Our Price - $24

It examines the events of the British Southern Campaign in the American Revolution that led up to the battle, as well as the battle's aftermath and its impact on the British surrender at Yorktown. More than thirty maps by John Robertson illustrate the major battles in the south and the complicated movements of Lord Cornwallis and Major General Nathanael Greene in their cat-and-mouse quest for control of the southern colonies. Greene's strategy and leadership is highlighted in this book. Other special features include military histories of the American and British units that were present at this battle, and an appendix with biographical sketches of the American commanders at Eutaw Springs: Nathanael Greene, Henry (Light Horse Harry) Lee, William Washington, John Eager Howard, Otho Williams, Robert Kirkwood, Richard Campbell, Francis Marion and Andrew Pickens. The Valiant Died is Christine Swager's fourth book about the Revolutionary War. In Black Crows and White Cockades and If Ever Your Country Needs You, she chronicled the campaigns of Francis "the Swamp Fox" Marion. She told the story of another historic battle in Come to the Cow Pens! Told with historical precision and in her storyteller's style, Swager's description of Gen. Nathanael Greene's hard fought victory at Eutaw Springs in September 1781 graphically outlines the story of the liberation of the south from British occupation. - Publisher's List Price = $24 - Our Price - $22.95
Sweeny, Lenora H. - AMHERST COUNTY, VIRGINIA, IN THE REVOLUTION. INCLUDING EXTRACTS FROM THE "LOST ORDER BOOK" 1773-1782- Southern Historical Press - ISBN# 0893082694 - BRAND NEW Hardcover in Red Cloth issued without jacket - 230pp - Reprint of 1951 Original - Located on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Amherst County was created from the southwestern portion of Albemarle County in 1761. Originally, its boundary lines were much larger, included in it's boundaries was Nelson County which was Nelson County which was carved off in 1808. It is surrounded by the present day counties of: Appomattox, Bedford, Botetourt, Buckingham, Campbell, Nelson, and Rockbridge. Thought to have been destroyed or carried off during the Civil War, the Amherst Order Book covering the Revolutionary time frame was discovered by the author during one of her many trips to the court house while doing research. Not only was the: Lost Order Book" 1773-1782 used to complete this book but other sources as well including Muster & Pay Rolls. Included in the discussion of Amherst's participation in the Revolution are many lists of which some are: The First Rifle Company, Officers of the Militia before and during the Revolution, Revolutionary soldiers from Amherst County comprising then the territory of the present day county of Nelson, and many, many lists of muster & payrolls from various companies serving duty from Amherst County. The author has even included disbursements to wives, widows & orphans of Revolutionary soldiers and also, claims for property impresses or taken for public service. Another interesting feature of this "Lost Order Book" 1773-1782 is a list of the names of soldiers who proved they had served in the French & Indian War and thus qualified to obtain bounty land allowed by the proclamation of the King of Great Britain in 1763. Of Special interest, the author has included over 200 applications of Amherst soldiers for Pensions. These applications many times give such information as: date & place of birth, date of death, current residence at time of filing, date of enlistment, his service record, date of marriage, names of spouse & children, along with their birth dates and marriage dates, names of his & his wife's parents, names of fellow soldiers he served with, even neighbors that lived beside him before taken duty, and date placed on pension roll.- $29.95

(Deane) Van Vlack, Milton - Silas Deane, Revolutionary War Diplomat and Politician - McFarland Publishing - ISBN# 9780786472529 - BRAND NEW Full-Size Laminated Softcover - 244pp - 22 photos, appendices, notes, bibliography, index - Silas Deane was the victim of one of the most vicious character assassination conspiracies ever carried out in the Revolutionary War era. Even after almost two and a half centuries, he remains in the eyes of many modern historians, "worse than Arnold," his boyhood friend.This is very wrong. Because Deane was such a capable individual in his endeavors very early in the war, he became the political target of envious others with quite different abilities and philosophies. Even so, his political strength kept growing and in 1776 Congress appointed him America's first secret agent to secure military supplies from France for Washington's army. This biography is written on the man himself and on the malicious and largely successful lies and intrigues by his rivals. The work does not downplay the contributions of his contemporaries, especially those of his close friend throughout, Benjamin Franklin, but shows exactly where specific credit should be placed. A lot of credit for the new nation's success belongs to him. Publisher's List Price =$40 - Our Price - $36.95

Heroes, however, existed throughout the ranks during the Revolution, and many made their marks without ever receiving proper recognition. These portraits of 28 Virginia Revolutionary soldiers expand the historical record of those who was a "hero." Whether as infantryman, cavalryman, marine, militiaman, spy, frontier fighter or staffer, all performed with distinction that contributed to victory. A strongman who performed superhuman feats during battle; a woman who fought as a soldier; a militiaman who sounded a fateful alarm--some gave their lives, others were terribly wounded, but all demonstrated heroism beyond the call of duty - Publisher's List Price =$35 - Our Price - $32.99

White, Emmett R.- REVOLUTIONARY WAR SOLDIERS OF WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA, Volume 2 - Southern Historical - ISBN# 0893085200 -BRAND NEW Hardcover issued without jacket - The contributions of the Revolutionary War soldiers of Western N.C. during the conflict of 1775-1782 were immense. The rolling hills of the Carolina Piedmont were as much a battleground as those of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Kings Mountain, Ramsour's Mill, Cowpens, the Indian Wars, and many other conflicts all helped to change the course of American history. Unfortunately, from a historical standpoint, very little written data is available concerning the contributions of the Western N.C. Militiamen. Many of the western counties, though their soldiers contributed greatly to the war effort, are historically "silent". This work is an effort to unravel and to present in a systematic way something about their lives and exploits. The initial two volume will be devoted to Burke County. Each soldier will be written up to his early life (as much as could be made available), his military experiences, his later life, including marriages, children, occupations, etc. Also included will be his land transactions and census locations. Where available, burial sites will be given as well as pension awards. Following completion of the Burke County editions, similar works will begin on the remaining Western North Carolina counties. Early research is now in progress for Wilkes, Surry, Rowan, Mecklenburg, Lincoln, and Rutherford counties - $36.95
