JOHN EAGER HOWARD in the American Revolution

JOHN EAGER HOWARD in the American Revolution
by Piecuch, Jim and Beakes, John

1-202420

From the early campaigns of the Revolutionary War in 1776 to the final battles in 1781, Lieutenant Colonel John Eager Howard of the Maryland Line built a reputation as an outstanding military leader. One author calls Howard one of the finest regimental commanders in American history. Contemporaries, including George Washington and Nathaniel Greene, knew well the impressive fighting qualities of this young officer. Greene once sent Howard to Baltimore carrying a letter that began with the words: 'This will be handed to you by Colonel Howard, as good an officer as the world affords.'

Howard participated in the New York campaign of 1776 and the Philadelphia campaign of 1777, led his Maryland troops as they fought heroically at the Battle of Camden, SC in 1780, and was awarded a Silver Medal by Congress for his superb performance at the 1781 Battle of Cowpens. He also served with distinction during the Race to the Dan and the Battles at Guilford Courthouse, Hobkirk's Hill, and Eutaw Springs.

After the war, Howard held several important offices including Governor of Maryland and US Senator. This is the first military biography of this distinguished soldier.

Includes five maps and 20 illustrations, three appendixes, notes, bibliography, and index.
