This is the story of marching men and clashing ships, of suffering, and of occasional heroic deeds. As in wars past, and for similar reasons, Lake Champlain and the region surrounding Lower Canada, Vermont, and Upstate New York became one of the major theaters of military action. For two and a half years, people in the region saw armies raised, defeated, and disbanded. They witnessed their own militia repeatedly called out to protect the border areas and to serve as adjuncts to regular army units. Despite a series of disheartening military reverses, loss of life, and destruction of property, civilians maintained a remarkable degree of resilience. They fled if battle threatened but soon returned to pick up the threads of their lives. Everest’s story shows us a war in microcosm and allows us a close-up experience of the small events that helped shape the destiny of a youthful and growing nation.About the Author:
Allan S. Everest is the author of Moses Hazen and the Canadian Refugees in the American Revolution, Our North Country Heritage, and Rum Across the Border.

Descripción de la librería
Returns can be initiated within 30 days of the order's estimated delivery date as per the AbeBooks return policies.
I use the US Post Office only to ship books. I normally ship using the USPS Media rate but will ship Priority Mail or Express Mail at the customer's request and expense. I have found that the ABE default USPS Priority Mail postage settings cost me dearly requiring me to modify them. My Priority Mail charge comes up as $10.35 on ABE but if I can get the book in a $4.95 flat rate small box I will do so and adjust the postage charges down appropriately. I do not use postage as a source of revenue. These same policies apply for international shipping as well, unfortunately the costs are significantly higher for First Class (4 lbs and under)or International Priority Mail; if I find I can get a book to you cheaper than the rate I have posted on ABE I will adjust the charge down. Be assured that your book will be packed quite securely.
