9781609495244: Revolutionary New Castle:: The Struggle for Independence

Though New Castle did not see any battles during the American Revolution, it was the Delaware's Colonial capital, and at it was at the center of the rebellion in the state. Its village green, still present today, served as a venue for early forums where colonists aired their grievances with the British government. Though it was considered more radical and inclined towards rebellion than the rest of Delaware, the city was also home to a sizable Loyalist community. When the city was occupied by the British in 1777, Loyalists from other colonies flocked to the relative safety of the city. However, after their departure, New Castle was still plagued by refugees" who were essentially Loyalist privateers that preyed on the coastal communities of the Delaware Bay. Historian Ted Corbett charts the history of this community in its days leading up to the Revolution, through the conflict and into the early years of the Republic when Delaware struggled to set up its new government."

Book Description The Histoyr Pres. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 128 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.In June 1774, New Castles Green was the site of open rebellion, as citizens gathered to protest the actions of the Crown. From the raising of militia to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, New Castle became Delawares leader in supporting the Revolution. Yet this was truly a civil war that divided families, friends and churches, and when General Howe and his British army invaded in 1777, they found many Loyalists to welcome them. Beginning with the earliest protests through the invasion by the British and the subsequent harassment from Royal Navy and loyalist raiders to the communitys role in the new republic and its support of the French Revolution, historian Theodore Corbett traces the tumultuous course of the Revolutionary era in New Castle. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781609495244
