Loyalists in the Adirondacks: The Fight for Britain in the Revolutionary War with Marie Williams

From the outbreak of the Revolutionary War to the summer of 1777, Loyalists and Patriot forces wove their way through the mountains and valleys of the Adirondacks, vying for land and control of the key waterways of the Hudson River, Lake Champlain, the St. Lawrence River and the New York Harbor. The majority of New Yorkers, particularly those who occupied the Adirondack Mountain Region and other wilderness frontier regions, were either Loyalist or neutral throughout the war. Their stories, motivations and actions are often overlooked out of a false impression that most colonists were unified in favor of American independence. Author Marie Williams recounts the harrowing efforts, battlefield endeavors and conflicted hearts and minds of the forgotten British and Loyalists during the revolutionary era in the Adirondacks.
