THE 1776-1777 NORTHERN CAMPAIGNS OF THE AMERICAN WAR FOR INDEPENDENCE AND THEIR SEQUEL: Contemporary Maps of Mainly German Origin

THE 1776-1777 NORTHERN CAMPAIGNS OF THE AMERICAN WAR FOR INDEPENDENCE AND THEIR SEQUEL: Contemporary Maps of Mainly German Origin
by Barker, Thomas M. and Huey, Paul R.

1-193880

12x9 with 24 color maps and 8 pages of color uniform plates. The 1776-1777 Northern Campaigns is the first, full-scale presentation in atlas form of the two abortive British-German invasions of New York (Gen. Carleton in 1776 and Gen Burgoyne in 1777) -- events crucial to understanding the rebel American victory in the War for Independence.

The bulk of the maps are from the German archives. The material has previously been little used by researchers in the United States due to linguistic and handwriting barriers. The volume includes transcriptions, translations, and detailed textual analysis of the naval and land operations of 1776 and 1777. It is written from an unusual military-historical perspective -- British, German, loyalist, French Canadian, and First American.

The attack of Benedict Arnold and Richard Montgomery on Quebec City, the colonial assailants' repulse and withdrawal to the Province of New York and the Hudson River corridor, prior actions in the adjacent St. Lawrence-Richelieu river region of Canada, the Battle of Valcour Island on Lake Champlain, the forts at Crown Point and Ticonderoga, and the Battles of Bennington and Saratoga all receive detailed attention.

The last section of the atlas deals with the less known, final phase of combat, in which the British, Germans, refugee tories, Quebec militia, and Amerindians kept the insurgents off balance by mounting numerous small-scale expeditions into New York.

Co-published with Lake Champlain Maritime Museum.
