Best known as a patriot and hero of the American War of Independence, Ethan Allen led the famed Green Mountain Boys in the capture of Fort Ticonderoga. Later that year, he spearheaded a failed assault on Montreal that resulted in his arrest by British authorities. Imprisoned aboard Royal Navy ships, paroled in New York City, and finally released in a prisoner exchange, Ethan Allen recorded his experiences in this stirring firsthand account of the early years of the Revolutionary War.
The Narrative covers the period from the May 1775 seizure of Fort Ticonderoga to Allen's release in May of 1778. Published a year after the conclusion of its events, the vivid and picturesque memoir became an instant bestseller, assisting mightily in General Washington's efforts to rally enthusiasm for the American cause. Although written almost entirely from memory, this chronicle is noted for its accuracy as well as its drama and historical value. It is essential reading for all students, serious and casual, of American history.
