Booknews
When remembered at all, Brown (1750-1825) is known as a vicious loyalist hanging patriots and thwarting the glorious revolution in the southern colonies. Cashin (Augusta College, Georgia) pulls him out of obscurity and uses his career as a thread to weave together accounts of colonial migration, upheaval in the backcountry, Indian diplomacy, the British evacuation of the southernmost colonies, and the formation of new settlements in the Caribbean. A new preface has been added to the 1989 edition which was published by the University of Georgia Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
