5/2/06 - Nonfiction Book Reviews: American Revolutionary Era
America's popular memory of the Revolutionary War casts New England minutemen facing off against redcoats at Concord Bridge and George Washington's frostbitten soldiers huddled together at Valley Forge, but The Southern Strategy, David K. Wilson's new study challenges the generally accepted notion that the war was fought primarily in the North. Wilson considers the waging of war in the southern colonies during the critical and often overlooked period from 1775 to the spring of 1780.

Because PatriotResource.com is based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, updates to the website have been disrupted for more than a week. Our own close friends, family and work were not severely affected by the hurricane. Though Baton Rouge itself only suffered isolated wind damage and power outages, the ongoing relief efforts for the areas to the east and southeast are taxing Baton Rouge.
