Border Fights and Fighters Vol 1
by Cyrus Townsend Brady

 
     
 

Border Fights and Fighters bookThis paperback book, Volume 1, is a reprint of four chapters from an original book published in 1901, written by the great grandnephew of Captain Samuel Brady. His writing, spelling and style is of a century ago, but it is easy to read and comprehend the very accurate details.

The four exciting chapters in this volume includes Henry Bouquet and follows his march over the PA mountains westward to his decisive and victorious battle at Bushy Run. Then you’ll meet Captain Samuel Brady, Chief of the Rangers, detailing this great family of fi ghters, the famous Brady leap and Captain Sam Brady’s adventures on the frontier with the likes of Lewis Wetzel and other Indian fi ghters. The third chapter is about General Andrew Lewis and the Battle of Point Pleasant. Lord Dunmore’s War was precipitated by the murder of Chief Logan’s family and Lewis fi ghts a pivotal battle between Shawnee Chief Cornstalk and a collection of border fi ghters with names like Girty and Kenton. The fi nal chapter details George Rogers Clark’s terrible 10 day winter march through ice and water up to their waists to capture the British “Hair Buyer General” at the Battle of Vincennes; saving The Great Northwest Territory and the USA from having a second Revolutionary War front being opened on our Western border.

Factual and interesting, these are stories of bravery and leadership so that a free country would emerge from a frontier of chaos.
