new history of this famous event, as told by an experienced Adirondack
hunting guide and re-enactor who trekked over the sites in period
clothing and equipment, made countless camps throughout the hills,
searched out travel routes, and tried to substantiate the times
and conditions recorded in contemporary journal entries in order
to separate fact from fiction. He also describes events leading
up to the battle and provides biographical information about the
two charismatic leaders, Rogers and Langis. While accounts of Rogers'
exploits are numerous, here we finally learn more about Langis,
the real hero of this contest.
