Postcard History Series, Eastern Montgomery County Revisited by Andrew Mark Herman
BK086 | $ 4.95
Originally published in Hallowell, Maine in 1830 as "A Narrative of Some Adventures, Dangers and Sufferings of a Revolutionary Soldier, Interspersed with Anecdotes of Incidents that Occurred Within his own Observation. This Revolutionary War veteran withholds nothing of the hard times: the fright, pain, and death of battle...the grinding agony of marches without rest or sleep ...the days of belly-twisting hunger. But he balances these dangers and sufferings with accounts of diversions -- hunting, fishing, boxing -- of pranks and frolics, and of encounters with an occasional sassy miss. This new edition has been widely hailed as a rediscovered gem of American history.
