John Buchanan. The Road to Guilford Courthouse: The American Revolution in the Carolinas. New York: John Wiley & Sons, 1997. If you missed this valuable history, check through your local used bookstore for a copy. This copy came as a discard from a public library–where space limitations demanded that the book be recycled–their loss is our gain. And I borrowed it from the library of a friend.
Buchanan gives us insight into the lives of some of the principal players who move around South Carolina, North Carolina, and move into Tennessee before, during, and after the American Revolution.
This book has mesmerized me–I am reading it for the third time. Each reading of these chapters brings me new insights and new resources to solve the tough genealogy connections between Tennessee and the Carolinas. Your favorite Tennessee genealogist, Arlene Eakle http://arleneeakle.com
