About this Item

HANGER, George. The Life Adventures, and Opinions of Col. George Hanger. Written by Himself [ghostwritten by William Combe]. London: Printed for J. Debrett, 1801. 1st ed. 2 vols. 339; 475pp. Orig. boards with paper spine labels. Former owners' signature and bookplate, some wear to spines, else a very nice, untrimmed set. HOWES H-158. Rare in original boards. One of the more important commentaries on the Revolutionary War in the South. Col. Hanger, later Lord Coleraine, served as aide-de-camp to Clinton during the Charleston Campaign. His services were distinguished, and he was on friendly terms with Clinton, Carleton, Tarleton, Gen. Dickenson, Major Andre, and others of note. He was wounded in action at Charlotte, North Carolina, and was appointed Major of Tarleton's Dragoons in 1782. In the second volume, Hanger makes this curious prophecy: ".one of these days, the Northern and Southern powers [of the United States] will fight as vigorously against each other, as they both have united to do against the British.".
