About the Book


This book is about some of the men who first gave us this free country where we live.  It is not about politicians or generals.  These men are from stores and farms of the common folk.  They are hunters and trappers of the mountains.  They joined together to fight the British.  These men were called Patriots.  Those who endured the hardships of war with nothing but hope, and the pain that came with hope.  They were cheered, treated as heroes, and loved by all as they went to do battle.  Patriots all, but when the battles were over, they faded into oblivion... like all wars since.

Marion E. Foddrill, the great, great, great grandson of Charles Foddrell who this book chronicles, has written this book.  Judy Foddrill Freeman, the niece of Marion E. Foddrill, has edited it.
