Code: B106
Price: $15.00
On the afternoon of March 13, 1758, in the snow-covered Adirondack Mountains near Fort Ticonderoga, the famous Captain Robert Rogers and his New England Rangers lay waiting in ambush. They never expected the punishing defeat they were about to suffer at the hands of the capable and underrated French partisan leader, Langis (Langy). Bearor writes knowledgeably about the weather and geographical conditions, the forts and the weapons, equipment and provisions used by the participants. He also describes events leading up to the battle and provides biographical information about the two charismatic leaders, Rogers and Langis. While accounts of Rogers' exploits are numerous, here we finally learn more about Langis, the real hero of this contest. Several detailed maps enhance the exciting account of the battle. The story is brought to life with excellent reenactment photographs. Bearor also examines some of the theories and myths that distort the history of this event.

Arnold's March from Cambridge to Quebec: A Critical Study
Code: S545
Price: $36.00
Together with a Reprint of Arnold's Journal. Here is a story of bravery unequalled in our country's history. In September, 1775, Colonel Benedict Arnold led a force of 1100 men through the Maine wilderness to Quebec, in a daring plan to capture that city. After a heroic struggle against difficult terrain, short rations, and the elements, he reached the city with about 650 men. There he was joined by Montgomery with 300 men from Montreal. On December 31 they launched what proved to be a disastrous attack on Quebec; Montgomery was killed, Arnold was wounded, 100 of their men were killed or wounded, and 300 were taken prisoner. This is the definitive history of that grueling trek, based on Arnold's journal as well as the accounts of several other participants. The narrative is illustrated with eighteen maps and charts. Extensive notes (about half the book) greatly supplement the main text and provide much additional data. This volume is simply a must-have for every history enthusiast! The author received the Pulitzer prize for American history in 1920. The present work is cited in the Harvard Guide to American History. (1903) Paper

LIBERTY MARCH: THE BATTLE OF ORISKANY
Code: LMT01
Price: $20.00
The Battle of Oriskany is a history of three Mohawk Valley cultures, Native American Iroquois, Loyalist British, and Patriot Palatine, which would clash in the wilderness inferno at Oriskany. It is the true story of a column of citizen soldiers who entered a ravine in upstate New York as Palatine settlers and Oneida Indians, and emerged as American heroes. . . . on the sixth of August 1777, seven hundred and sixty men of the patriot Tryon County Militia, allied with sixty Oneida Indian warriors, clashed with a mixed force of Iroquois and Loyalists in a pivotal engagement of the American War of Independence. The militia brigade and the Oneidas were marching to the relief of a besieged Fort Stanwix when they were ambushed by Iroquois warriors (primarily Senecas and Mohawks), Tory rangers, and a detachment of the King's Royal Regiment of New York. As a result, the ground called Oriskany was forever sealed in the annals of United States history. This generation can pay no better tribute to the pioneers of the Mohawk Valley than to rescue from oblivion the true import of the deeds they did. 7x10 Paper

French and Indian War Notices Abstracted from Colonial Newspapers, Vol.
Code: L820
Price: $31.50
Abercrombie's humiliating defeat at Ticonderoga in 1758 was the last straw for the beleaguered British Army. After three years of attempts to remove the French from their settlements and forts on English territory, the British resolved to replace their inept, politically appointed commanders with reputable generals. The new strategy proposed and adopted was to combine the British regulars, provincial forces and militias into three expeditions to attack the French on three fronts simultaneously, and to take all of Canada, ridding North America of all French interests. One by one the French forts fell: DuQuesne, Frontenac, Louisbourg, Ticonderoga and Crown Point. This volume takes the reader up to the eve of Wolfe's invasion of Quebec City. These pages contain the exact articles presented to the reader as originally published; there are facts, rumors, exaggerations, unconfirmed reports and several downright falsehoods. Extracts of private letters from the different frontiers, forts and settlements, describe atrocities committed by the French, the Canadians and their Indian allies. Includes reproductions of 19th-century battle maps of Ticonderoga, Louisbourg, and Quebec. 1999 Paper

French and Indian War Notices Abstracted from Colonial Newspapers, Vol. IV
Code: 1378
Price: $28.00
September 17, 1759 to December 30, 1760 -- Volume IV of this series is packed full of action and drama: soldiers march, ships sail, guns roar; generals fall, villages burn and scalping knives drip with gore. These unaltered newspaper articles consist of letters, reports and perhaps a few exaggerations; still, they represent the type of information that was flowing from the printing presses to the general public. The battle for Quebec on the Plains of Abraham occurred on September 13, 1759, but news traveled slowly and the citizens in Boston waited in suspense until mid-October for confirmation of that British victory. The newspapers continued to feature eyewitness accounts of the battle for months, praising the brave actions of the fighting men and lamenting the deaths of the great rival generals, Wolfe and Montcalm. Another well-known event took place that same September when Robert Rogers and his famous Rangers attacked and demolished the St. Francis Indian village. Although the goal of the expedition was accomplished, French militia, in hot pursuit of the Rangers, forced Rogers to alter his return route. He and his men nearly starved to death during that exhausting journey. While the British were claiming victories in the north, newspapers in Virginia and the Carolinas reported that the Creek and Cherokee Indians were spreading mayhem in the southern colonies. After enduring repeated attempts to assault, burn and bomb Montreal, Governor Vaudreuil agreed to surrender the city, and General Amherst was hailed as the Conqueror of Canada. The Articles of Capitulation, September 8, 1760, are presented here in their entirety. Although the capital of New France had fallen, the war persisted on the frontier for three more years. Includes a full .name index and a map showing British Colonies and Northern New France, 1750-1760. Paper

Searching through his beloved Adirondack woods wearing 18th-century clothing and equipment, the author 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 have never trekked these historic trails in person to test their theories. Until now. Whether you are a seasoned veteran who already has an opinion about these topics, or a novice when it comes to French and Indian War history, this book presents new evidence with which to make your own determinations. 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. The book is enhanced with photographs of artifacts, along with maps and illustrations. Paper

The West Point Foundry & the Parrott Gun: A Short History
Code: TWP03
Price: $6.50
THE West POINT FOUNDRY, one ot America’s famous early ironworks, was built in the 1820s near the village of Cold Spring, New York, on a flat sandy area close to the Hudson River. It inducted a stone blast furnace to make iron from local ore and large water-powered lathes capable of machining large cannons. The company, which also had a branch in New York City, made locomotives, ships’ engines and boilers, equipment for mills, and other large machinery parts. The products from Cold Spring were shipped on the river to New York and other destinations. When the Civil War began, production was concentrated on making guns, projectiles, and gun-carriages. The foundry’s best-known product was the Parrott gun, justly famous for its range and accuracy. 5.5 x 8.5

SYBIL LUDINGTON earned a place in American history on a rainy night in 1777 when she rode through enemy-infested woods in what is now Putnam County to summon her father’s regiment to bait a Britisb raid on Connecticut and New York.

Widowed young, she became a successful businesswoman in a profession then dominated by men and raised her son to become a man of stature in his community. This is the first biography of an extraordinary woman who has been honored with a commemorative postage stamp and statues in Putnam County and Washington, D.C. 6 x 9 Paper

Genesis: Rogers’ Rangers, The First Green Berets
Code: L1575
Price: $37.00
This collectible classic, much sought after by connoisseurs of colonial American military history, is once again in print. Originally published in 1969, it constitutes Volume II of Burt Loescher’s meticulously researched History of Rogers’ Rangers. This work offers the complete record of every action, ambuscade, scout and expedition of Major Robert Rogers and his Rangers from April 6, 1758 (just after their defeat in the Battle on Snowshoes during the French and Indian War), to their disbandment on December 24, 1783, at the end of the American Revolution. From 1758 to 1761, the Rangers were active as scouts and advance guards from Canada to the West Indies. Known mainly for their ambuscades around Fort Ticonderaga and Lake Champlain, they also served at the siege of Louisbourg, the fall of Quebec, on the Great Lakes, arid in the Southern theatre against the Cherokee. In 1763 the corps was revived to take part in Pontiac’s Rebellion. During the American Revolution, Rogers fought on the British side and commanded Rogers’ Queen’s and King’s Rangers. Tragically, this extraordinary leader died in disgrace a few years after the Revolution in a London debtors’ prison. Robert Rogers’ famous Ranging Rules for bush fighting have been handed down and adapted by elite military corps such as Darby’s Rangers in World War II and the Green Berets in Vietnam. Mr. Loescher’s monumental study of Rogers’ Rangers remains unequaled to this day. The 20-page bibliography alone is a valuable research aid. It lists principal sources from the Public Records Office in London; Huntington Library; the Public Archives of Canada; Clemen's Library; Rogers’ papers, and dozens of unpublished diaries and other works. The appendices include additional selected documents and historical notes, plus a list of battle honors of Rogers’ Rangers. Several excellent battle maps illuminate the text, along with a portrait of Major Rogers by the well-known artist, R. S. Embleton, and an illustration by the author of Rogers’ Rangers’ uniforms, 1758-1783. The comprehensive index contains full names plus subjects and also covers Volume I (not available at this time). This is the definitive work - the absolute last word - on Rogers’ Rangers. It belongs in the library of every Ranger buff, historian, or French and Indian reenactor. Attractively hardbound in dark green cloth and stamped with gold foil. (1969) 

Marinus Willett Defender of the Northern Frontier
Code: MWD01
Price: $15.00
During the War for Independence, citizens like Marinus Willett truly risked their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to establish the republic in which they fervently believed. Willett’s bravery and unflinching dedication to the cause of liberty made him a hero of Fort Stanwix in 1777 and saved the Northern Frontier for the patriot cause in 1781. He was a superb warrior, but the contradictions in his complex personality probably kept him from converting his military reputation to a successful career in New York’s tangled politics. 6x9 Paper

Code: L1741
Price: $43.00
We are pleased to offer this rare 1946 classic - the indispensable companion to Volume II, Genesis: Rogers' Rangers, The First Green Berets. Based chiefly on the Loudoun Manuscripts in the Huntington Library, here is the history of the very beginning of Rogers' Rangers, the elite military unit that set the standards for future special forces. Volume I covers the years in which Ranger activities reached their height during the French and Indian War. In early 1755 he established the first Ranger company, which was made up of hardy New England woodsmen who were expert survivalists and Indian fighters. This study of the early Ranger years follows their rise as they won their spurs, experienced growing pains, and eventually gained fame as the most fearsome force on the British-American side of the French and Indian War. The wealth of information to be found in Mr. Loeschers's books cannot be overstated. This new edition is beautifully hardbound in dark green cloth and stamped with gold foil (to match Volume II). Includes a color print of Robert Rogers by Helene Loescher, illustrations of early Rangers, maps of the two famous snowshoe battles of La Barbue Creek and Rogers' Rock, and a fold-out map of 22 early Ranger battles between 1755-1758.

Journals of Major Robert Rogers
Code: JOM01
Price: $29.00
By Timothy Todish. Illustrated by Gary Zaboly. Major Robert Rogers of the Rangers is not only one of the most famous men to come out of Colonial America, he is also one of the most fascinating. This book, reprinted from the rare 1769 Dublin edition of his Journals, allows the major to tell portions of his life in his own words. To supplement his accounts, numerous annotations have been added by the author to give a broader picture of the events described. Most are from eyewitnesses, or at least contemporaries of Rogers. Later secondary sources are used sparingly. Occasionally an annotation, or series of annotations, are used to present the background for the action. The wonderful original illustrations, along with well-written captions, add an invaluable dimension to this edition. They also fill in some gaps in his life that are not specifically covered in the text of the Journals. 341 pages, 8.5 x 11, illustrated, bibliography, index Paper

America's FIRST First World War - The French & Indian War
Code: AFW01
Price: $15.00
By Timothy J .Todish. Contrary to the belief of many people, the first world war in which America was involved was fought on our native soil, with an impact on our nation's history at least as significant as that of the 1917-18 war. Twenty years before the outbreak of the American Revolution, the colonies were locked in a struggle for their very existence - a struggle that rarely receives more than a passing word in modern day history books. For some seventy-five years, France and England had engaged in a series of generally inconclusive wars both in Europe and North America. The year 1754 marked the outbreak of the last of these conflicts, which would determine once and for all which power would dominate in North America. This popular history has been fully rewritten and new illustrations have been added. It brings to life original accounts from the French and Indian War, along with recently discovered information regarding key moments in the conflict. Readers are given a full understanding of the basic elements that shaped the conduct of the war - from young George Washington at Fort Necessity, to Major Robert Rogers' daring raid on St. Francis. It's all here, and more! Written in a style that's rich and vibrant, yet easy to read. No library is complete without a copy of Todish's book. 124 pages, 6 x 9, illustrated, bibliography, index Paper
