Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The Battle of Minisink, fought on the high ground in New York State, above the Delaware River, and opposite the mouth of the Lackawaxen River, is the most dramatic event in the history of the Upper Delaware Valley. This engagement, fought July 22, 1779, was no mere frontier skirmish, but resulted in a small army of colonial militia engaged in a deadly confrontation with a body of Tories and Iroquois Indians led by the capable Mohawk Chieftain, Col. Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea).The battle, which some have termed the bloodiest encounter of the Revolutionary War in proportion to the number of men engaged, lasted for about four hours, and resulted in the defeat and the rout of the militia.Long the subject of controversy, this conflict has at last received adequate study by the historian and archaeologist, Dr. Vernon Leslie, whose research has brought to light a body of previously unknown historical data. He has also brought to this task a sense of scholarship which has endeavored to separate fact from myth.This volume has been referred to as "the definitive work on the battle," but not by the author, who more modestly describes it as "probably the best treatment it will receive unless an unexpected and major new source is discovered."What cannot be disputed is that after having been treated outrageously by previous writers, the Battle of Minisink has in the pages of the present volume been given the scholarly and thorough treatment it deserves.

Inhaltsangabe: The Battle of Minisink, fought on the high ground in New York State, above the Delaware River, and opposite the mouth of the Lackawaxen River, is the most dramatic event in the history of the Upper Delaware Valley. This engagement, fought July 22, 1779, was no mere frontier skirmish, but resulted in a small army of colonial militia engaged in a deadly confrontation with a body of Tories and Iroquois Indians led by the capable Mohawk Chieftain, Col. Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea). The battle, which some have termed the bloodiest encounter of the Revolutionary War in proportion to the number of men engaged, lasted for about four hours, and resulted in the defeat and the rout of the militia. Long the subject of controversy, this conflict has at last received adequate study by the historian and archaeologist, Dr. Vernon Leslie, whose research has brought to light a body of previously unknown historical data. He has also brought to this task a sense of scholarship which has endeavored to separate fact from myth. This volume has been referred to as ?the definitive work on the battle,? but not by the author, who more modestly describes it as ?probably the best treatment it will receive unless an unexpected and major new source is discovered.? What cannot be disputed is that after having been treated outrageously by previous writers, the Battle of Minisink has in the pages of the present volume been given the scholarly and thorough treatment it deserves.

Über den Autor: The author of this book, when asked why he selected the Battle of Minisink as the topic for his second volume on upper Delaware Valley history, stated that because of the slipshod treatment the battle had received from previous historians and its many unanswered problems, it posed a challenge which he was eager to accept. A personal interest also motivated the writer because of his kinship with the family of Captain Bezaleel Tyler, a casualty in the engagement. Dr. Vernon Leslie?s research in the story of man in the upper Delaware Valley began with the archaeology of the area, a study to which he devoted over forty years. The results of his research are set forth in a previous volume ? Faces in Clay. The recipient of many awards and honorary memberships, Dr. Leslie, who holds the degree of Doctor of Science, honoris causa, from Susquehanna University, has now turned his interest from prehistory to history. Although he spent a teaching career of thirty-eight years in the field of foreign languages, he was also licensed to teach history in the public schools of Pennsylvania.
