I have been seeking information about the Hornet's Nest activities in New Jersey during the American Revolution for years. Please continue your monograph soon.

Thumbs up for more Revolutionary War/Colonial era posts! These are fascinating looks at some of the lesser known engagements of the War.

I'm really glad to hear that, Jim. I certainly find it compelling stuff to write. Funny for a long-time Civil War buff to be so heavily into the previous Century. I guess it is a bit like all those hardcore birders who became captivated by learning to identify lepidoptera and dragonflies: New challenges and room for new discoveries and besides, they were out there anyway.


I'm enjoying these, Tim, and in their installment form as you suspect. The 'blog is a short form by its nature, anyway; best suited to those like me with the attention span of a moth.

I'm also finding colonial military history rather poignant. The aims are so clear, the reward so obvious.

At least in retrospect.
