About the Author:

Meet the Author Robert W. Pelton has carefully mined hundreds of sources for historical cooking and baking recipes from the early days of America. He has perused innumerable old cookbooks as well as yellowed and tattered handwritten receipt ledgers from both private and public archives and libraries. Through all this, he has been able to skillfully recreate these treasures of the past in an unparalleled series of 10 historical cookbooks. Each recipe has been meticulously updated for use in kitchens of today. His latest are titled A Treasury of Family Recipes From the Time of the American Revolution and Family Baking Recipes of the Signers. Robert W. Pelton proudly claims a heritage going all the way back to well before the War for American Independence. One of Mr. Pelton's ancestors, John Rogers, came to America on the Mayflower and was one of 41 signers of the Mayflower Compact. Another, John Smith was one of the founders of Jamestown. Peleg Pelton served as the fifer in the Continental Army at age 18 during the Battle of Saratoga (1777) and again in Yorktown (1781). Captain Peter Hager was Commander of the Old Stone Fort in Schoharie, New York, in 1780. Another, Captain Bezaleel Tyler fought in the only Revolutionary War Battle taking place in Sullivan County, New York. Here he fought against Mohawk Chief Thayendeneges, who was also known by the name of Joseph Brant. Mr. Pelton is a member of the Sons of the Revolution and Sons of the American Revolution and soon to be a member of The Order of Cincinnati which was formed by George Washington and General Knox exclusively for the men and the descendants of men who served as officers in the Continental Army or Navy. Membership in this organization is widely considered to be one of the most prestigious and sought after accomplishments in the heritage society community. All of Mr. Pelton's books have been endorsed by the Freedom & Liberty Foundation; Christian America Foundation; and Sons of the Revolution (SOR).
