1-203720 Baker-Crothers, Hayes VIRGINIA AND THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR When hostilities flared between the British and French inhabitants of North America in the 1750s, the Virginia Colony and the Ohio Trading Company took center stage in the events that would later be remembered as the French and Indian War. Habitually without funds, supplies, experienced military leadership, or even a motivated body of men willing to defend their homes, the Virginia Colony struggled desperately to protect its western frontier from Indian incursions and partisan raids meant to wipe out the English presence in the Ohio River and Allegheny Mountain regions and secure a French monopoly on Indian trade.

Professor Hayes Baker-Crothers examines the role of the Virginia Colony at the outbreak of war and analyzes Virginia's contributions to the hard-won English victory, hampered for years by the legislative incompetence, military inactivity, and self-interest inherent in the British Colonial system. It is proposed in this text that the root causes of the conflict lay in the colonial rivalries between the British and French empires, and that the nature of the economic rivalry kept the burgesses of Virginia from concentrating on the implementation of an effective wartime strategy until long after the crippling defeat of General Braddock and the increasing frequency of French and Indian attacks deeper and deeper into British territory.

Professor Baker-Crothers is quick to illustrate the self-imposed isolation in which Virginia and her neighboring colonies of Maryland, Pennsylvania and North Carolina made their defense against the French and Indian threat, choosing to fend for themselves and hold out for British aid rather than pool their resources and provide for common security.

Special attention is paid by the author to the following: the crippling defeat of Braddock's expedition; the appointment by Parliament of Earl of Loudon to commander-in-chief of North American forces; the political turmoil and military blundering surrounding that appointment; the imposition of more strict military discipline at the request of George Washington; the dynamic leadership of Virginia Governor Francis Fauquier and British Secretary of State William Pitt; the political stalemate in the Maryland legislature over tax monies spent on supplying the militia; the taking of Forts Frontenac and Duquesne; and other notable campaigns of the conflict.

1-193871 Bellico, Russell P. EMPIRES IN THE MOUNTAINS: French and Indian War Campaigns and Forts in the Lake Champlain, Lake George, and Husdon River Corridor The French and Indian War (1754-1763), the North American theater of the Seven Years' War, would change the map of the continent and set the stage for the American Revolution. The conflict, which pitted the French and their Indian allies against the English, has often been misunderstood and largely received minor treatment in most general histories of America. To some, the name of the war itself has been puzzling and somewhat misleading because Britain also had Indian allies during the war.

The war represented a culmination of a century-old struggle for control of North America. The clash was inevitable. English settlers increasingly pushed westward and northward from their original settlements on the east coast, displacing the French and Native Americans. The French population in North America, approximately 55,000 by the middle of the eighteenth century, lived principally along the St. Lawrence River; but New France claimed a vast amount of territory to the west, linked by a string of isolated trading posts and forts.

In contrast, the population of the English colonies had expanded from a quarter million inhabitants in 1700 to 1.2 million by 1750. English land companies soon began to encroach on territories claimed by the French. To defend their land holdings, the French built a series of substantial fortifications on the strategic water routes of their empire, including along the Richelieu River-Lake Champlain corridor. 150 illustrations. 1 vol, 366 pgs 2010 NY, PURPLE MOUNTAIN PRESS

1-194570 Berleth, Richard BLOODY MOHAWK: The French & Indian War and the American Revolution on New York's Frontier The Mohawk River Valley in New York state sat right in the middle of the expansion of the American frontier during the French & Indian War and the American Revolution and saw its share of warfare. When the fighting was over, the valley lay in ruins and as much as two-thirds of its population lay dead or had been displaced. The sweeping historical narrative chronicles the years 1713 to 1794 as the valley changed from a fast-growing agrarian region streaming with colonial traffic to a war-ravaged wasteland. It covers the relationship of early settlers to the Iroquoian people who made their homes beside the great river and includes profiles of key participants, along with contemporary perspectives of the raids, ambushes, and expeditions. Bloody Mohawk offers insight into the roots of civil war in nonnegotiable ethnic and cultural misunderstandings. 1 vol, 384 pgs 2010 US. BLACK DOME PRESS

1-194630 Campbell, Alexander V. The Royal American Regiment: An Atlantic Microcosm, 1755-1772 In 1755, the British army raised the 60th Royal American Regiment of Foot to fight the French and Indian War. Each of the regiment's four battalions saw action in pivotal battles throughout the conflict. And as Alexander Campbell shows, the inclusion of foreign mercenaries and immigrant colonists alongside British volunteers made the RAR a microcosm of the Atlantic world. Not just a potent, combat-ready force, it played a key role in trade, migration, Indian diplomacy, and settlement.

This book moves beyond the campaign orientation of most regimental histories to explore how the Royal Americans helped forge new Atlantic connections. Campbell draws on the regiment's rich archival legacy - including the private papers of its first three colonels-in-chief and of mercenary field officers - to describe more fully than previous accounts the lives these soldiers led in the context of their times.

Campbell takes a closer look at the motivations of regimental founder James Prevost, a Swiss mercenary in the courts of Kings George II and George III, and explores how migration to America attracted rank-and-file soldiers. He examines the unit's training, deployment, and operational conduct to reveal the use of new tactics, and also chronicles a year in the soldiers' lives as they attended to hard labor in preparation for the summer's campaigns. He also traces the postwar activities of these veterans, showing how many of them, by taking up land grants they had been promised upon enlistment, helped settle the frontier and expand commerce.

Rather than focus on previously documented animosity between British regulars and provincials, Campbell reveals how soldiers from different backgrounds formed a multiracial, multilingual society that reflected a truly cosmopolitan transatlantic identity.

1-200940 Clary, David GEORGE WASHINGTON'S FIRST WAR: His Early Military Adventures 'I heard the bullets whistle, and, believe me, there is something charming in the sound.' So wrote the young George Washington to his brother, something that David Clary notes no veteran soldier would say.

In this biographical history, Clary describes how the ambitious new lieutenant colonel was papering over the fact that his men and Indian allies had ambushed a force of French Canadians on a diplomatic mission, killing their leader Joseph Coulon de Villiers de Jumonville and setting off the French and Indian War of 1754-63. Clary's vivid portrait follows the future president from the start of his career, suffering repeated blunders and defeats in the wilderness, yet learning from each of his mistakes. 1 vol, 0 pgs 2011 US, SIMON & SCHUSTER

1-205960 Cubbison, Douglas ALL CANADA IN THE HANDS OF THE BRITISH: General Jeffery Amherst and the 1760 Campaign to Conquer New France The full story of the successful sieges of Montreal that ended France's control of Canada. Includes 12 b&w illustrations, two figures, and three maps.

In 1760, General Jeffery Amherst led the British campaign that captured Montreal and began the end of French colonial rule in North America. All Canada in the Hands of the British is a detailed account of Amherst's successful military strategy and soldiers' experiences on both sides.

Newly promoted general Jeffery Amherst took command of British forces in North America in 1759 and soon secured victories at Fort Duquesne, Louisbourg, Quebec, Fort Ticonderoga, and Niagara. In 1760 William Pitt, head of the British government, commanded Amherst to eliminate French rule in Canada. During the ensuing campaign, Amherst confronted French resurgence at Quebec and mounted sieges at Isle aux Noix and Fort Levis, both of which were made difficult by French strategic placements on nearby islands. As historian Douglas R. Cubbison demonstrates, however, Amherst was well before his time in strategy and tactics, and his forces crushed French resistance.

Cubbison examines the three principal columns that Amherst's army comprised, only one of which was under his direct command. Cubbison argues that Amherst's success against the French relied on his employment of command, control, communications, and intelligence; and also shows how well Brigadier General James Murray's use of what is today called population-centric counterinsurgency corresponded with Amherst's strategic oversight and victory.

Using archival materials, archaeological evidence, and the firsthand accounts of junior provincial soldiers, Cubbison takes us from the eighteenth-century antagonisms between the British and French in the New World through the Seven Years' War, to the final siege and its historic significance for colonial Canada. In one of the most decisive victories of the Seven Years' War, Amherst was able, after a mere four weeks, to claim all of Canada. All Canada in the Hands of the British will change how military historians and enthusiasts understand the nature of British colonial battle strategy. 1 vol, 304 pgs 2014 US, UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA PRESS

1-198300 Hughes, Ben FORT WILLIAM HENRY The opening years of the French and Indian War were disastrous for the British. In 1755 General Braddock's troops were routed at the Battle of Monongahela and by the middle of 1756 Fort Oswego on Lake Ontario had fallen. Hindered by quarrelsome provincial councils, incompetent generals, and the redcoats' inability to adapt to wilderness warfare, Britain was losing the war.

In 1757 the 35th Regiment of Foot stepped into the breach. A poorly trained assortment of conscripts, old soldiers, and convicted criminals led by Lieutenant Colonel George Monro, the regiment was destined to take center stage in the most controversial event of the war. Fort William Henry on the southern shore of New York's Lake George was a key fortification supporting British interests along the frontier with French America.

Monro and his regiment occupied the fort in the spring of 1757 while Britain planned its attack on the key French fortress at Louisbourg, Nova Scotia. Learning that most of Britain's military resources were allocated to Louisbourg, the French launched a campaign along the weakened frontier. French Commander Louis-Joseph de Montcalm and his American Indian allies laid siege to Fort William Henry; Monro could not hold out and was forced to surrender.

As part of the terms, the British regiment, colonial militia, and their camp followers would be allowed safe passage to nearby Fort Edward. The French watched in horror, however, as their Indian allies attacked the British column after it left the fort, an episode that sparked outrage and changed the tactics of the war.

Seen through the eyes of participants such as Louis Antoine de Bougainville, a scholarly young aide-de-camp, Jabez Fitch, an amiable Connecticut sergeant, and Kisensik, a proud Nipissing chief whose father once met Louis XIV in the marbled halls of Versailles, The Siege of Fort William Henry: A Year on the Northeastern Frontier uses contemporary newspaper reports, official documents, private letters, and published memoirs to bring the narrative to life. From Indian councils on the banks of the Saint Lawrence River and bustling military camps in northern New York to the narrative's bloody denouement on the shores of Lake George, the reader is immersed in the colorful, yet brutal world of eighteenth-century northeastern America. 1 vol, 336 pgs 2012 US, WESTHOLME PUBLISHING

1-202680 Mays, Edith editor AMHERST PAPERS 1756-1763: The Southern Sector Dispatches from South Carolina, Virginia and His Majesty's Superintendent of Indian Affairs - Edith Mays. Jeffrey Amherst was Commander-in-Chief of His Majesty's Forces in North America during the French and Indian War. Documents from his records relating to the war are located in the British Public Records Office as 'W.O. 34: General Sir Jeffrey Amherst 1712-1784 (47-48).'

Microfilms of these records have been transcribed, arranged in chronological order and indexed in this book. Page numbers of the original documents are given so that researchers can easily find them on the microfilm. The earliest records of this collection are from Edmund Atkin, Southern Superintendent of Indian Affairs.

These documents include recruitment of Indians for war against the French, orders to Deputy Indian Agent Christopher Gist, and many of Atkin's account records that give names of people who were paid and who received goods. The bulk of the documents range from 1760 and 1761, when Amherst sent forces against the Cherokees. Correspondence describes conditions in South Carolina, the march inland, the attack on the Cherokees, and some courts martial for desertion.

The years 1762-1763 brought finalization of a peace agreement with the Cherokees. Weekly and monthly returns of the state of the troops and applications for commissions are scattered throughout these records.

1-972017 Reid, Stuart 017 BRITISH REDCOAT vs FRENCH FUSILIER: North America 1755-63 Providing a unique glimpse into the experiences of regular British and French infantry during the French and Indian War, Stuart Reid reveals what it was like to fight in three battles at the height of the struggle for Canada: La Belle-Famille, the Plains of Abraham and Sainte-Foy.

In 1755, Britain and France both decided to escalate a low intensity frontier war that had started the previous year by dispatching regular troops to their respective colonies in North America. Far from home, both sides' equipment and tactics were initially more suited to the European theater.

1-56780 Richards, Frederick BLACK WATCH AT TICONDEROGA and MAJOR DUNCAN CAMPBELL The Black Watch Regiment gained fame for its fearless charge during Maj. Gen. James Abercrombie's futile attack on Ticonderoga in 1758, in which more than half of the 1000 Highlanders were killed or wounded in one of the most dramatic battles of the French and Indian War. At this battle, Major Duncan Campbell met his death, as foretold by a ghost several years earlier at his home at Inverawe, Scotland. The eerie legend is explained in this book, and was immortalized in Robert Louis Stevenson's poem Ticonderoga.

This small but comprehensive volume gives a history of the Black Watch Regiment from 1667. The Black Watch was also known as the 42nd Regiment of Foot, the Highlanders, the Royal Highlanders or Lord John Murray's Highlanders. Included in this work is a family history of the Campbells of Inverawe. Appendices A-S give a wide variety of information: regimental and company rolls; principal campaigns, battles, etc.; British and Provincial Regiments at Ticonderoga, 1758 and 1759; and biographical sketches of 31 officers of 1758 (including Abercrombie, several Campbells, John Reid, James and Lord John Murray, and Thomas Stirling). Other appendices contain an original regimental list of the Black Watch; 1759 officers list; and references taken from Commissary Wilson's Orderly Book.

A bibliography and copy of references to be found in the Canadian Archives round out this volume. This excellent resource is brimming with hundreds of names, and contains a fold-out map by Thomas Jeffreys of The Plan of the Town and Fort of Carillon at Ticonderoga. 1 vol, 132 pgs 2005 BOWIE, HERITAGE PRESS

1-206990 Scharff, Ben SKULKING IN THE WOODS: Irregular Warfare in Pennsylvania During the Seven Years' War Covers five major Pennsylvania episodes of the French and Indian War -- Washington's and Braddock's defeats, the guerrilla attacks of 1756, the taking of Fort Duquesne, and the Battle of Bushy Run.

Scharff's explanations for the outcomes of these campaigns are both fresh and convincing -- Washington and Braddock could have won had they employed different strategies, and by the end of the war the British had learned from their mistakes and were able to deploy regular troops effectively against French irregular forces. Scharff dispels the myth that colonial irregulars were superior to British forces in wilderness fighting by getting beyond Braddock's overwhelming defeat to assess the war in its entirety. Included: several maps, bibliography, and an index to full names, places and subjects. 1 vol, 230 pgs 2014 US, HERITAGE BOOKS

1-36640 Stacey, C.P. QUEBEC, 1759: The Siege and the Battle Updated and edited by Donald E. Graves. B/w illust/maps, notes, appendices, biblio., index.

This book was first published for the 200th anniversary of the battle, in 1959, and is still regarded as the best detailed account of the siege and the battle. This edition contains the entire original text, and editor Donald E. Graves has added picture essays, maps, appendices containing important new information, and updated references and bibliography, making this the most complete, attractive and authoritative book available on the military operation that changed the course of history.

Quebec fell in 1759 to British forces led by James Wolfe -- the single most important event in the history of Canada. The drama and mythology surrounding the battle on the Plains of Abraham have diverted attention from questions the historian must ask. Who made the plans? Why did they succeed or fail? Was Montcalm a bad commander or an unlucky one?

The dramatic battle on the Plains of Abraham which secured final victory for Major General James Wolfe not only set the course for the future of Canada -- it opened the door to the independence of the thirteen American colonies some twenty years later. 1 vol, 320 pgs 2014 CANADA, ROBIN BRASS STUDIO

1-197750 Sturat, Kenneth DEFENDERS OF THE FRONTIER: Colonel Henry Bouquet and the Officers and Men of the Royal American Regiment Swiss-born Colonel Henry Bouquet remains one of the most unappreciated British Army officers from the pre-Revolutionary War period in North America. During the uneasy peace that followed the French and Indian War, Bouquet and his Royal Americans, along with troops from the Black Watch and Highland regiments, protected and rescued settlers on the western frontiers of Pennsylvania and Maryland from increasingly frequent Indian attacks. Bouquet's victory at Bushy Run and his triumphant march into the Ohio Country essentially halted the Indian uprising of 1763-1764. With patience, military discipline and tactical skill, he defeated a resourceful and deadly enemy.

Historian Martin Blumenson called Bouquet the foremost soldier of his day. Ironically, other British Army defeats and disasters of a more sensational nature often obscure Bouquet's brilliant accomplishments. Military historian and instructor Kenneth P. Stuart thoroughly researched the official papers of Bouquet and his contemporaries for this detailed study. Correspondence reveals Bouquet's highly trained military mind, his personal frustrations with the colonial assemblies and the British high command, and his private moments of occasional depression.

1-207780 Williams, Glenn DUNMORE'S WAR: The Last Conflict of America's Colonial Era Known to history as Dunmore's War, the 1774 campaign against a Shawnee-led Indian confederacy in the Ohio Country marked the final time an American colonial militia took to the field in His Majesty's service and under royal command. Led by John Murray, the fourth Earl of Dunmore and royal governor of Virginia, a force of colonials including George Rogers Clark, Daniel Morgan, Michael Cresap, Adam Stephen, and Andrew Lewis successfully drove the Indians from the territory south of the Ohio River in parts of present-day West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky. Although it proved to be the last Indian conflict of America's colonial era, it is often neglected in histories, despite its major influence on the conduct of the Revolutionary War that followed.

The book explains the course and importance of this fascinating event. Supported by primary source research, the author describes each military operation and illustrates the transition of the Virginia militia from a loyal instrument of the king to a weapon of revolution. In the process, he corrects much of the folklore concerning the war and frontier fighting in general, demonstrating that the Americans did not adopt Indian tactics for wilderness fighting as is popularly thought, but rather adapted European techniques to the woods.

As an immediate result of Dunmore's War, the frontier remained quiet for two years, giving the colonies the critical time to debate and declare independence before Britain convinced its Indian allies to resume attacks on American backcountry settlements. Ironically, at the same time Virginia militiamen fought the biggest battle of Dunmore's War under command of a king's officer, delegates to the First Continental Congress in Philadelphia decided on a united resistance to Parliament's heavy-handed Coercive, or Intolerable Acts that threatened representative government in all the colonies.

Before another nine months passed, Virginia became one of the leading colonies in the move toward American independence. Although he was hailed as a hero at the end of the Indian campaign, Lord Dunmore's attempt to maintain royal authority put him in direct opposition to many of the subordinates who followed him on the frontier. Before being driven from Virginia in 1776, he notably organized the Royal Ethiopian Regiment composed of slaves who were promised freedom if they deserted their rebel masters and entered military service to the crown. 1 vol, 384 pgs 2015 US, WESTHOLME PUBLISHING

1-197931 Wulff, Natt RANGER: North American Frontier Soldier: Volume 1 Once the colonization of North America began it would not take long for conflict to follow. The European Empires of France and Great Britain would wage war for almost a decade to decide which world power would control the continent. The French, through strong alliances with the various Native American tribes would integrate the Native's methods of waging war with their own to develop what would be known as 'La Petite Guerre', or 'The Little War'.

Raiding parties of French Partisan fighters and Native Americans would sweep down from Canada and attack isolated settlements along the frontier of the English colonies, then just as quickly melt back into the forest from which they came. The militia organizations of the English settlements were often caught unaware by the quick hit and run raids of the French and Indians.

A new type of soldier was needed that could provide security against these raiders from the north, a soldier that could fight the enemy on their own terms in the vast woodlands of North America. With this need, the Ranger was born. In this book Matt Wulff takes a look at some of the more famous Ranger units from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries that risked their lives as 'Guardians of our frontiers.' 1 vol, 178 pgs 2008 US, HERITAGE BOOKS
