General Wards Colonial Army
10,09 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

General Wards Colonial Army is an enlightening collection of articles giving the history of the Massachusetts minute-men and militia that first engaged the British during the Revolutionary War. When this series was originally published for The Massachusetts Magazine, 1908-1918, the periodical proved an authoritative resource on the officers of the Massachusetts Revolutionary regiments and has been compiled, edited, and updated for a modern audience by Keith A. Brough. This book, pulling extensively from the collected information of Dr. Frank A. Gardner-who wrote the original articles and began chronicling these events at age seventeen-also incorporates factual data researched and recovered by Brough. Chapters are logically organized by regiment and county, with each containing a biographical narrative and historical sketch of the corresponding regiment, thus forming a natural reference guide to the Commonwealths 17 volume Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War. The book creates a unique perspective and vivid picture of key officers as they developed in their careers. The information includes their location of service, the date of enlistment, the action they saw, alarms to which they responded, and finally their resignation date, in addition to other pertinent facts.

African Americans in the Colonial Era - From Af...

What are the origins of slavery and race-based prejudice in the mainland American colonies? How did the Atlantic slave trade operate to supply African labor to colonial America? How did African-American culture form and evolve? How did the American Revolution affect men and women of African descent? Previous editions of this work depicted African-Americans in the American mainland colonies as their contemporaries saw them: as persons from one of the four continents who interacted economically, socially, and politically in a vast, complex Atlantic world. It showed how the society that resulted in colonial America reflected the mix of Atlantic cultures and that a group of these people eventually used European ideas to support creation of a favorable situation for those largely of European descent, omitting Africans, who constituted their primary labor force. In this fourth edition of African Americans in the Colonial Era: From African Origins through the American Revolution, acclaimed scholar Donald R. Wright offers new interpretations to provide a clear understanding of the Atlantic slave trade and the nature of the early African-American experience. This revised edition incorporates the latest data, a fresh Atlantic perspective, and an updated bibliographical essay to thoroughly explore African-Americans African origins, their experience crossing the Atlantic, and their existence in colonial America in a broadened, more nuanced way.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the first of the three volumes of his projected comprehensive narrative history of the role of law in America from the colonial years through the twentieth century, G. Edward White takes up the central themes of American legal history from the earliest European settlements through the Civil War. Included in the coverage of this volume are the interactions between European and Amerindian legal systems in the years of colonial settlement; the crucial role of Anglo-American theories of sovereignty and imperial governance in facilitating the separation of the American colonies from the British Empire in the late eighteenth century; the American ´´experiment´´ with federated republican constitutionalism in the founding period; the major importance of agricultural householding, in the form of slave plantations as well as farms featuring wage labor, in helping to shape the development of American law in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; the emergence of the Supreme Court of the United States as an authoritative force in American law and politics in the early nineteenth century; the interactions between law, westward expansion, and transformative developments in transportation and communication in the antebellum years; the contributions of American legal institutions to the dissolution of the Union of American states in the three decades after 1830; and the often-overlooked legal history of the Confederacy and Union governments during the Civil War. White incorporates recent scholarship in anthropology, ethnography, and economic, political, intellectual and legal history to produce a narrative that is both revisionist and accessible, taking up the familiar topics of race, gender, slavery, and the treatment of native Americans from fresh perspectives. Along the way he provides a compelling case for why law can be seen as the key to understanding the development of American life as we know it. Law in American History, Volume 1 will be an ess... 1.
