A LEAP IN THE DARK: THE STRUGGLE TO CREATE THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC
NEW copy. Oxford University Press, 2003. Hardcover with dust jacket (no price shown on jacket).
Illustrations, maps, abbreviations, notes, index, 558 pages. "Many Americans today see the period from 1754 to 1801 in American history as a rational progression from British colony to the independent United States. Nothing could be further from the truth, as shown by Ferling (history, State Univ. of West Georgia; John Adams: A Life) in this account of the Founding Fathers' struggles to do what had not been done before: create a nation. Throughout, he debunks popularly held notions: Benjamin Franklin, for example, pursued reconciliation with England even as the Minutemen were marching, believing negotiation was in the best interests of the American Colonies. George Washington had more luck than skill as a military commander and trapped the British at Yorktown only after French general Rochambeau urged him to march to the Chesapeake and ensnare British general Cornwallis by land and by sea. As the fighting ended, American leaders realized that the Articles of Confederation, which bound the Colonies together during the war, was inadequate for the peace. Revolutionary leaders declared independence when they saw no other alternative but war, and they wrote the Constitution when they saw no other alternative than union led by a strong national government. Ferling's intriguing narrative is filled with stories of Americans both famous and obscure." ~~ Library Journal

THE COMPLEATED AUTOBIOGRAPHY of BENJAMIN FRANKLIN.
NF/NF. Bottom corners slightly bumped, otherwise as new. (Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, 2006).
Color plates, extensive notes with sources, chronology, cast of characters, index, 484 pages.
~~~ Benjamin Franklin's celebrated Autobiography, published after his death, is one of the greatest autobiographies of all time... but it was incomplete. Franklin ended his life's story in 1757, when he was only fifty-one. He lived another thirty-three full, eventful, and dramatic years, some of the most dramatic years in American history, years in which Franklin was America's advocate in London, represented Pennsylvania in the Continental Congress, and was America's wartime ambassador to France. During these years Franklin also helped write our nation's Constitution and planned an American Empire that would displace the British Empire.
Franklin is one of the most fascinating of the Founding Fathers-a polymath like Jefferson, a practical statesman like Washington, and a cynic and wit beyond parallel. Now, at last, in The Compleated Autobiography by Benjamin Franklin, we finally get the rest of the story, in Franklin's own words.
Faithfully compiled and edited from Franklin's papers by Dr. Mark Skousen- Franklin's descendant, acting as his devoted secretary-this is the closest we will ever get to Franklin sitting down in his study in Philadelphia, dipping quill into ink, and finishing his autobiography.

"Searching through his beloved Adirondack
woods wearing 18th-century clothing and
equipment, best-selling Heritage Books author
Bob Bearor discovered what is believed to be
the long-lost sites of Rogers’ Rangers’ winter
battle of January, 1757, and the ambush and
death of Lord Howe in the summer of 1758.
By comparing accounts in both French and
British journals, military records and other
sources, Bearor carefully retraced the routes
of the advancing troops and reconstructed
actual times and distances, thus verifying the
sites. Archeological evidence subsequently
confirmed his findings. The controversy arises
because other writers have placed the battles
at different locations, but no one has ever
trekked these historic trails in person to
test their theories — Until now.
First, the battles are recounted in
picturesque detail, in a way that can only
be done by someone familiar with the region
and its history. Then comes an explanation of
the methods used in the discovery, exploration
and verification of the sites. The coup de
grace is a description of the treasure
trove of artifacts found at the site. This
work includes photographs of artifacts, maps

Borneman, Walter R.,
THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR: Deciding the Fate
of North America.
NEW copy, hardcover with dust jacket.
From 1754 to 1763, American colonists and British regulars fought French
regulars, Canadian colonists, and Indians in a war that ranged from the frontier
to the gates of Quebec and Nova Scotia. After two years the British formally
declared war on France and began what became known as the Seven Years War as
other European powers became involved with battles across the globe from islands
in the Caribbean through Europe and the Mediterranean to Africa, India, and the
Philippines. Walter R. Borneman covers both the American phase as well as the
larger war and he concludes by showing how the war laid the foundation for the
American Revolution. Throughout his narrative, he personalizes, in deft strokes,
the leading actors and some of the subordinate players such as George
~~~ Although French explorers and traders ventured over much more
of the continent, relatively few colonists settled in the great expanse they
claimed. In contrast, the British colonists who far outnumbered the French
settlers were located in the strip between the Atlantic and the Appalachian.
There had been friction as the several wars between the two powers in Europe
spilled over into the New World but the French and Indian War began on the
~~~ In late 1753, when French forces pushed farther south of the
Great Lakes and established small forts, the colonial governor of Virginia
dispatched a 21-year old militia officer, George Washington, to warn them off.
This proved ineffectual and other colonies and the government in London began to
be concerned. The British government hoped that sending a veteran officer,
Edward Braddock, with two regiments in 1755 and giving him authority over the
colonial troops would settle the problem. A smaller force of French regulars,
Canadian militia, and Indians, however, routed his expedition in a battle which
cost Braddock his life.
~~~ Three more British commanders also failed before
Jeffrey Amherst took command three years later. Under his leadership the tide
turned as British and American troops began to drive the French out of forts
below the Great Lakes. In 1759, the mercurial James Wolfe took the war to Canada
and defeated the French at Quebec. A year later the French surrendered all of
Canada. In the larger war, British Navy dominated the sea war while British
troops conquered Cuba, Guadeloupe and Martinique in the West Indies and Manila
in the Philippines.
~~~ The peace settlement in 1763 between the great powers
did not settle the American frontier. Within a few months several Indian tribes
rose up against the British who defeated them but trouble with the colonists was
just beginning as British measures laid the foundation for the American
Revolution. In that war, veterans of this earlier war, such as British generals,
Thomas Gage and William Howe, and American generals, Washington, Horatio Gates,
and Benedict Arnold, played greater roles. ~~~Edward M. Coffman

"Beginning with the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, and the conditions and
characteristics of the British-American colonies in Canada in 1750, the author
lays the background for the French designs against British expansion. He then
proceeds to describe the various clashes between the two European powers in
America, including the fight at Great Meadows, Braddock’s Expedition, and
Johnson’s futile campaign on Lake George, that led to the formal declaration of
war between France and England in May, 1756. The fighting continues through the
battles at Louisbourg, Fort William Henry, Ticonderoga, Frontenac, and the
Plains of Abraham as well as the deaths of Wolfe and Montcalm. The British
triumphed in the end and the French surrendered Montreal and their possessions
in North America to Great Britain."

TWO VOLUMES. Heritage Books, 2005. Index, 890 pages.
~~~ In 1897, C. Alice Baker published
True Stories of New England Captives Carried to
Canada During the Old French and Indian Wars,
which Heritage Books reprinted several years ago,
but which is now out of print. Following the initial
publication of that work, Ms. Baker and Emma Lewis
Coleman continued to research this topic, scouring
the libraries and archives of New England and Canada
for information. Following the death of Ms. Baker,
Ms. Coleman prepared the present volumes using all
the data they had accumulated over several decades.
These volumes name all the captives they discovered
and provide biographical data on each, but the
sketches on those people who had been covered in
the earlier volume are abbreviated in comparison to
those who had not been covered in the first
compilation. This work provides an extensive
picture of the Indian attacks on New England
communities over about an eighty-year period, and
in terms of identifying their captives, it is
probably the most definitive work ever published.
Sources are cited in footnotes and an appendix
identifies various people and places mentioned in
the text. There is a complete name index.

SHADOWBROOK: A Novel of Love, War, and the Birth of America.
NEW copy. Hardcover with dust jacket. (Simon & Schuster, 2004), 490 pages.
~~~ From Publishers Weekly: "Swerling's
sweeping fictional account of the French and
Indian War rivals Harold Coyle's 1997 novel,
Wilderness, in its masterful treatment of the
hardship, brutality and treachery
of America's colonial wars. Covering the years
1754-1760, with the British,
French and Indians slaughtering each other for king
and empire, Swerling tells
of two men who straddle the white and red man's
worlds, desperate to preserve
the best of each culture, but fearful they will lose
everything they love.
Quentin Hale is a gentleman turned scout whose
family owns a prosperous New York
plantation called Shadowbrook. He is white, but also
follows the Indian ways of
his adopted tribe, the Potawatomi. Cormac Shea is
part-Irish and part-Indian,
nearly a brother to Hale, but he wants all whites
driven from Canada. Together
these men find themselves caught up in a bloody war
neither wants, but they must
fight to save the plantation and create a homeland
for the Indians. Hale faces
treachery at home from his sadistic and greedy elder
brother, John; from a
scheming one-eyed Scot; and from lying, corrupt
politicians who want to steal
his legacy; he also has an Indian enemy who wants
to cut out his heart. Hale and
Shea fight in many battles, mostly massacres, from
Louisbourg and Fort William
Henry to the climactic battle at Quebec.
Surrounding them are colorful
historical figures like the young George
Washington, the hapless General
Braddock and the powerful Ottawa chief, Pontiac.
Swerling also cleverly reveals
the arrogant influence of the Catholic Church in
politics, the duplicity of
governmental promises and the forced migration of
Acadians from Nova Scotia. The
complexity of the history involved may daunt some
readers, but most will be
captivated by Swerling's intricate plot, colorful
characters and convincing
descriptions of colonial life".

BRADDOCK ROAD CHRONICLES, 1755: From the Diaries and Records of Members of the Braddock Expedition and Others Arranged in a Day by Day Chronology
. NEW copy. TRADE PAPERBACK. Heritage Books, 1999. Illustrations, maps, 489 pages.
"In 1755 Maj. Gen. Edward Braddock was put in charge of constructing a road from the Potomac River at Wills Creek (Cumberland, MD), to Fort Duquesne (present-day Pittsburgh) at the forks of the Ohio River. His object was to take the fort and thereby launch the conquest of French-held North America. Although Braddock was killed not far from his goal in the grisly clash known today as Braddock's Defeat, the route that he opened ultimately became a highway for western emigration, and part of it was incorporated in the National Road. The making of the Braddock Road was an engineering marvel that tested the abilities and endurance of its builders. The remarkable detail contained in this compilation is too vast to mention here but includes descriptions of forts, personnel, food, Indians, clothing, lodging and more. Carpenters, artificers, shoemakers, tailors, wagonmasters, farriers, nurses, cooks: nothing less than a traveling city was required in the construction of the Braddock Road. Personal journals and official military reports and correspondence are gold mines for anyone who studies the people, events and daily life of the past. The material collected here is extracted from the records of British army regulars (including Braddock, St. Clair, Gage and others), colonial militia (Cresap, Croghan, Gist, Washington, etc.), camp followers, American colonists (Burd, Hamilton, Franklin, Dinwiddie, Delancy, etc.), French-Canadians (Contrecoeur, Dumas, Lotbinier, etc.) and newspapers. The ultimate battle is described firsthand. Short biographical sketches, a chronology and a list of sources round out this comprehensive study. These fascinating accounts are enhanced with informative annotations."

. NEW copy, trade PAPERBACK.
(Westminster, MD: Heritage Books, 2006). Reprint of
the original 1893
edition. Index, 296 pages.
~~~ This highly desirable reprint includes not just one, but many such accounts. Between 1750 and 1753 Christopher Gist, the Agent of the Ohio Company of Virginia, explored the greater portion of the region now included within the states of Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia, and parts of western Maryland and southwestern Pennsylvania. These explorations were the earliest made so far west for the single object of examining the country, and they are the first of which a regular journal was kept. Gist is often remembered for saving George Washington from freezing to death in the Allegheny River as they returned from delivering a message to the commandant of the French forts in the Ohio country during the winter of 1753. These remarkable journals contain descriptions of lands, friendly and hostile Indians, Indian customs, French settlements and forts, English settlements, and interesting events that occurred on the trail. Additionally, this book contains biographical sketches of Gist and many interpreters and traders, such as Andrew Montour and the Montour family, George Croghan, Thomas Cresap, the Indian Guyasuta, General James Grant, Conrad Weiser, and others. Historical documents, correspondence, and maps supplement this important work. Of special interest is Robert Orme’s letter to Gov. Dinwiddie, describing the horror of Braddock’s Defeat. Other information relates to the Treaty of Lancaster, the Ohio Company, the Walpole Grant, Wm. Trent & Co., Pownall’s Account of the Lead Plate, and Letters and Speeches to Indians.

. NEW copy, trade PAPERBACK.
(Westminster, MD: Heritage Books, 2006). 280 pages.
~~~ Pioneer, fur trader, and frontier diplomat, Christopher Gist, the first Colonial explorer of the Ohio territory, is also Annosanah - speaker of true words. In spite of his Wyandot title, he knows he must deceive the very Indians who have named him. In the guise of an emissary inviting the Ohio tribes to a conference, he searches the Ohio Valley for land best suited for white settlement. On this first journey in 1750 for the Ohio Company, he seeks to replace his lost inheritance through land speculation, thus setting the stage for the eventual displacement of these Indian people. In the next decade France and England fight the last of the French and Indian Wars. A willing participant, Gist sees the destruction of his home, a stormy relationship with an arrogant young George Washington whose life he twice saves, a fiasco at Fort Necessity, and the annihilation of General Braddock's Redcoats. But this life of adversity only prepares him for the most challenging task any frontiersman could face: liaison between two peoples as different as the worlds from which they come.
[Hamilton] Ron Chernow,
NEW copy. Hardcover with dust jacket. Penguin Group,
"Alexander Hamilton was arguably the most important
figure in American history
who never attained the presidency, but he had a far
more lasting impact than
many who did. An illegitimate, largely self-taught
orphan from the Caribbean,
Hamilton rose with stunning speed to become George
Washington's aide-de-camp, a
battlefield hero, a member of the Constitutional
Convention, the leading author
of The Federalist Papers, and head of the Federalist
party. As the first
treasury secretary, he forged America's tax and
budget systems, customs service,
coast guard, and central bank. Chernow offers the
whole sweep of Hamilton's
turbulent life: his exotic, brutal upbringing; his
brilliant military, legal,
and financial exploits; his titanic feuds with
Jefferson, Madison, Adams, and
Monroe; his shocking illicit romances; his
enlightened abolitionism; and his
famous death in a duel with Aaron Burr in July 1804.
Throughout, Chernow blends
Hamilton's public and private selves to present a
fully rounded portrait of this
handsome, witty, controversial genius and his
poignant relations with his wife,
Eliza, and their eight children. Hamilton's countless
exploits never cramped his
prolific literary labors. Chernow brings to light
nearly fifty previously
undiscovered essays as he explores Hamilton's
fiery journalism, his youthful
poetry, his magisterial state papers, and his
revealing missives to colleagues
and friends. Moreover, he conjures up portraits of
Hamilton's celebrated peers,
Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe,
and Burr with all their
shortcomings as well as their oft-sung triumphs."

edited with an introduction by Carl Bridenbaugh.. NEW copy. In green
boards without dust jacket, as issued. Introduction, notes, index, 300 pp. "Dr. Alexander
Hamilton's ITNERARIUM is one of the happiest combinations of liveliness, wit, and
instructive information written in colonial America. The description of his journey from
Maryland to Maine and back in 1744 is unequalled by any other writer... Hamilton ran the
gamut of colonial life; little that was interesting or significant escaped him. Although
he describes provincial rural society, he bestows most of his attention on the urban
centers--Philadelphia, New York, Newport, Boston. There an American culture was
germinating... Gay, facetious, and affable, Hamilton enjoyed nothing on his travels so much
as to foregather with a gentleman 's club about a convivial bowl where the conversation
might begin with a discussion of war, trade or politics, progress to women, and then, as
he readily admitted, end 'in a smutty strain.'... Because he was alert, fairminded, and
tolerant, the doct or reviewed the colonial scene with an amused eye. Inclined to a
fashionable deism like so many of his class, he resented religious enthusiasm, and poured
out his irony on the followers of George Whitefield, 'our New Light biggots,' whom he could
infallibly detect by 'a particular down-hanging look. Creeds held no interest for him and
as a result he indifferently confused Presbyterians and Congregationalists in his comments
on the Great Awakening, then at its height in New England.. . Hamilton everywhere found
life arresting and entertaining, and just as he generously shared his experience with
contemporaries he also recorded it with sprightliness and humor for the enjoyment of
posterity." (Originally in print at $22.50. Now OUT OF PRINT).
