JOHN LAURANCE and the Rise and Fall of New York Federalism. Seminal biography of the sixteen-year-old English immigrant who crashed pre-war New York's exclusive legal fraternity to become George Washington's wartime Judge Advocate General, Alexander Hamilton's legislative right-hand man, James Madison's loose-constructionist House adversary, President John Adams's Senate ramrod for defense build-up during "quasi-war" with France, and wildly successful land speculator! Who said American founding fathers had to die broke? Planned publication date: Fall 2017. For more on Laurance, see the author's scholarlly article "John Laurance and the Role of Military Justice at Valley Forge" in the January 2017 issue of Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography.
New! Revised Third Edition of Farmers Against the Crown. Our definitive account of the April 27, 1777 Revolutionary War Battle of Ridgefield came off the press April 1, 2017 . . . just in time for the bloody day's 240th anniversary. (See "Other Publications" Page)
