Synopsis

Boys' Book of Border Battles The True Tales Behind America's Greatest Battles of the 18th and 19th Centuries by Edwin L. Sabin

A classic of historical war literature, Boys' Book of Border Battles puts you at the scene of some of the most important and storied battles in the history of North America. From George Washington's charges against the French in the mid-1700s to the lengthy and drawn-out wars in the western territories between the ever-advancing white frontier settlers and Native American tribes, Sabin's book is an important record of American history.Noted both for the author's exhaustive research and for his historical accuracy (even his writing style might suggest a document written during the time periods he writes about), the Boys' Book of Border Battles is the final book in a trilogy penned by Sabin about the adventures of the Wild West. But where the other volumes dealt more with the lawlessness and chaos that defined the early days of frontier living for white settlers, this last title is described in the author's own words as an American soldier book, of organized fighting on American soil by militia, volunteers, and the regulars of the 'old army.' This Skyhorse reprint of the 1920 text faithfully reproduces Boys' Book of Border Battles in its original state, complete with high-quality replicas of the illustration plates that accompany the book.
