: : Several of you have recommended good books to read. For good background material I liked:
: : Eckert's Wilderness War
: : Dale Van Every's Forth to the Wilderness
: : Francis Jenning's Empire of Fortune: Crowns, Colonies and Tribes in the Seven Years War in America (an excellent book!)
: : Let us know if you've found other good ones!
: Oops. I meant Wilderness Empire! Wilderness War is about the Revolutionary War(but good also).
Also try Eckert's "The Frontiersman" about the life of Simon Kenton, a man few have heard of, who saved D. Boone's life, kicked Andy Jackson's butt, went with G.Rogers Clark on his expd. into Revolutionary Ohio, and many other adventures. A really good read too!
Another good one is "Drums Along The Mohawk", it gives a day to day account of life on the frontier.
