During this time he alone held eastern South Carolina from the British, then helped Henry Lee capture the British posts along the Santee, and finally commanded a corps in the army with which Nathaniel Greene drove the British from South Carolina...." - Acknowledgements from Swamp Fox: The Life And Campaigns Of General Francis Marion

By Sol Stember

This set of three books are in good condition. All three books have the previous owners stamp affixed to the inside of the front cover.The covers of all three books are in good condition. There is some wear on them, but not anything significant. There seems to be a little moisture damage on Volume I. The pages in the books are free of any markings. The pages are tanned and yellowed. "No man is an island, particularly when he is trailblazing through territory new to him and most particularly when he attempts to produce a work of this extent. Space does not permit me to acknowledge all the help and advice I received from numerous historical societies and their members who were in touch with me at one time or another during preparation and writing of this book. A few names, I confess, I neglected to record or lost along the way. I am thinking particularly of the Francis Marion National Forest ranger who took us to the site of the Wambaw fight and the gentlemen at the courthouse in Calhoun County, South Carolina, who finally put us on the right track to Fort Motte. To you and to others who I may have neglected to mention, my sincere apologies...." - Acknowledgements (for all three volumes of the Guide) from The Bicentennial Guide to the American Revolution This is a three book set and may require additional postage.

Crucible of War

By Fred Anderson

This book is in very good condition and in honor of the 100th book listed, I am offering it at 50% off. the suggested retail price. In this engrossing narrative of the great military conflagration of the mid-eighteenth century, Fred Anderson transports us into the maelstrom of international rivalries. With the Seven Years War, Great Britain decisively eliminated French power north of the Caribbean - and in the process destroyed an American diplomatic system in which Native Americans had long played a central, balancing role - permanently changing the political and cultural landscape of North America. Anderson skillfully reveals the clash of inherited perceptions the war created when it gave thousands of American colonists their first experience of real Englishmen and introduced them to the British cultural and class system. We see colonists who assumed that they were partners in the empire encountering British officers who regarded them as subordinates and who treated them accordingly. This laid the groundwork in shared experience for a common view of the world, of the empire, and of the men who had once been their masters. Thus, Anderson shows, the war taught George Washington and other provincials profound emotional lessons, as well as giving them practical instruction in how to be soldiers. Depicting the subsequent British efforts to reform die empire and American resistance - the riots of the Stamp Act crisis and the nearly simultaneous pan-Indian insurrection called Pontiac's Rebellion - as postwar developments rather than as an anticipation of the national independence that no one knew lay ahead (or even desired), Anderson re-creates the perspectives through which contemporaries saw events unfold while they tried to preserve imperial relationships. Interweaving stories of kings and imperial officers with those of Indians, traders, and the diverse colonial peoples, Anderson brings alive a chapter of our history that was shaped as much by individual choices and actions as by social, economic, and political forces - Alfred A Knopf
