Dark and Bloody Ground: The American Revolution Along the Southern Frontier based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Usually a book on the Revolution has very little at all on the frontier, and American Indians are barely mentioned. Here they are front and center. It was astonishing to read what an extensive role American Indians had in the South during the Revolution. It's like an entirely separate war was going on. A fascinating story told in an easy to read style.
I did not realize how complicated this subject is, and the author does a deft job of handling it in one volume. The volume is well researched. He includes some detailed and insightful analysis while filling in some sorely needed information into gaps about our history that are far too often neglected. I enjoyed this read, and recommend it to anyone more interested in a slightly different perspective on this topic than what we typically get in popular fiction, media, and the classroom.
