Overview

What do you do when your commanding officer frames you to conceal wartime atrocities, when you're literally facing the gallows for crimes that you didn't commit? You run!

Jonathan E. Lee was the idealistic youngest son of an eminent Virginian plantation clan until he made the mistake of following his dashing older brother, "Light Horse Harry" Lee, into the nascent Continental Army. Now standing falsely accused of capital crimes, Jonathan is on the run, fleeing The Colonies for British Canada to save his neck from the hangman's noose. But little does Jonathan know that this is only the first brush with a violent death that he will face in the bitter years to come.

Based in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, "The Life of a Colonial Fugitive" is a fictional, but historically accurate, tale of the globetrotting adventures of Jonathan E. Lee, a member of the esteemed Lee Family of Old Virginia. Follow Jonathan through the upheavals of the American Revolution, in a fratricidal struggle for independence as he fights alongside the militia of the sovereign Republic of Vermont, in a treacherous civil war as a soldier of fortune in the Kingdom of Siam, and finally as a mercenary in America's first foreign war, fighting valiantly against the hated Barbary Pirates of Mediterranean. Settle in to your saddle and grasp the reins, because you're in for a galloping ride!
