About this title


This is the story of Peter Bauer, a fictional character, who experiences life in the historical settings of the American Revolutionary War. Although his encounters are those of a drummer boy of the Hessian Ditfurth Regiment, his actions and reactions are much like those of any other youngster from anywhere around the world at the tender age of ten. Readers are invited to follow Peter from his life on the family farm in Germany, to his long voyage across the Atlantic in 1776, to the Battle of Rhode Island—a time when survival took on a greater meaning than victory or defeat, and finally, to his return home and to civilian life eight years later. A pleasure to read, this well-researched historical novel offers an unusual perspective of the Revolutionary War. Numerous illustrations enliven the text.

About the Author:

Authors Walter K. Schroder, a military historian and former Defense Department contracting officer, and Gloria A. Emma, an executive secretary to 17 Commanding Officers at the base, have brought together their extensive knowledge of the Seabee Center for this volume. Their great respect for the Davisville Seabees' contributions to military efforts over the years is apparent as they present this original history of the base. This collection is sure to be both an education and a source of pride for those who came through the base and for those hearing about it here for the first time.
