About this title

Synopsis:

In this classic account of the Revolutionary War experiences of the North Carolina Continentals, Hugh F. Rankin traces the events leading to war in North Carolina and follows all the campaigns and battles in which the North Carolina Continentals took part--Brandywine, Germantown, Charleston, Savannah, Camden, Eutaw Springs, and others. He also provides descriptions of almost all of the significant personalities in the Continental Army. Originally published in 1971, this new edition contains a foreword by Lawrence Babits, introducing the book to a new generation of scholars and general readers interested in the Revolutionary War.

Book Description:

"[ North Carolina Continentals] has stood the test of time. [Rankin's] insightful commentary about North Carolina's military endeavors and the political difficulties of supporting Tarheel soldiers provided a key picture of Revolutionary efforts in the South. Moreover, Rankin brought these neglected Southern efforts to the front rank of Revolutionary War studies."--Lawrence Babits, from the Foreword

There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
