The organizers of this year's Saratoga Event are in the process of raising funds to put on what looks like the largest event of 2007. In an effort to help out, I've decided to donate $10 of every sale of my book on Riflemen to the Saratoga event. The book, entitled, "They Are Indeed a Very Useful Corps: American Riflemen in the Revolutionary War," includes a chapter on the formation of Daniel Morgan's Rifle Corps, and another chapter on their role at the Battle of Saratoga. The Saratoga chapter is full of eyewitness/primary accounts that I think many reenactors will enjoy.
The book also covers the formation of the first continental rifle companies and their role at Boston, Quebec, New York, Trenton and Princeton, Brandywine, Valley Forge, the New York Frontier, and in the South at Kings Mountain and Cowpens.
The books retails from $30 from my publisher (Heritagebooks) but I am selling copies for $25... plus $2 for shipping.
I will also bring a few to Saturday's Continental Line meeting in case anyone is interested in picking a copy up there.
Remember, for every book sold, $10 goes to the Saratoga event to pay for water, toilets, wood, etc... If you already have a copy, maybe you'r local library would appreciate one. Then you'd be helping two groups out at once.
