The Virginia Adventure  Roanoke to James Towne: An Archaeological and Historical Odyssey, Hume, Ivor Noel
8 Hume, Ivor Noel The Virginia Adventure Roanoke to James Towne: An Archaeological and Historical Odyssey
Knopf 1994 0394564464 / 9780394564463 First Edition Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket Signed by Author
Signed by author on bookplate. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful scarce collectors grade copy of this book. For thirty-five years, as writer, lecturer, and chief archaeologist at Colonial Williamsburg, Ivor Noel Hume has enlivened for us the material culture of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century America. After his warmly praised book Martin's Hundred, he now turns to the two earliest English outposts in Virginia -- Roanoke and James Towne -- and pieces together revelatory information extrapolated from the shards and postholes of excavations at these sites with contemporary accounts found in journals, letters, and official records of the period. He illuminates narratives that have a mythic status in our early history: the exploits of Sir Walter Ralegh, Captain John Smith, and Powhatan; the life and death of Pocahontas; and the disappearance of the Roanoke colony. He recounts a recent important excavation at Roanoke where he and his colleagues found the work site of a metallurgist named Joachim Gans, whose findings about the mineral wealth of Virginia helped to convince London merchants that America was a worthy risk This is an account of high and low adventure, of noble efforts and base impulses, and of the inevitably tragic interactions between Indians and Europeans, marked by greed, treachery, and commonplace savagery on both sides. The astonishment of this history is that despite bad luck, bad management, and bad blood, the English presence in America persisted and the Virginia settlements survived as the birthplace of a country founded on English law and language.

With clarity, authority, and elegant wit, Noel Hume has enhanced our understanding of the historical forces and principal players behind England's first perilous ventures into the New World, and proved again that he is without a doubt one of the great interpreters of our early colonial past. ; 1.5 x 9.3 x 6.4 Inches; 491 pages; For thirty-five years, as writer, lecturer, and chief archaeologist at Colonial Williamsburg, Ivor Noel Hume has enlivened for us the material culture of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century America.

12 Rattermann, H. A.; Tolzmann, Don Heinrich A German Regiment Among the French Auxiliary Troops of the American Revolutionary War H. A. Rattermann's History
Clearfield Co 1999 0806349107 / 9780806349107 Various Paperback Fine with no dust jacket 
Green booklet looks new. Very clean contents. Book now in archival sleeve to protect condition.While it is widely known that German soldiers from Hesse (Hessians) fought on the British side of the American Revolution, it is less well known that among our French allied forces were a number of German units. For example, more than half of the 300 men recruited in France by Lafayette in 1779 hailed from Alsace-Lorraine and southwestern Germany. According to one authority, it is possible that the German enrollment in the French cause may have equaled the figure of 30,000 ascribed to Germans among the British forces. One such unit of German soldiers was the Royal German Regiment Zweibrucken, or Deux-Ponts, led by Prince Christian von Zweibrucken. The Royal German Regiment Zweibrucken is the focal point of this publication, which is based upon a heretofore unpublished manuscript by H.A. Rattermann found among the papers in the Rattermann Collection at the University of Illinois-Urbana by the noted German-American authority, Don Heinrich Tolzmann, who also edited the manuscript for publication. Rattermann's account follows Prince Zweibrucken and his charges from April 15, 1780, when they sailed for America. After landing in Newport, Rhode Island on July 11, Zweibrucken's unit encamped at various places in New England. During the spring and summer of the following year, Deux-Ponts was instrumental in launching feint attacks against British General Henry Clinton's forces in New York, while a large American army was beginning to amass against Cornwallis in Virginia. The German unit eventually arrived in Williamsburg on September 26, 1781, and from October 14-17, contributed to the U.S. victory at Yorktown--ironically by fighting directly opposite Hessian forces. Augmenting the account of Prince Zweibrucken's auxiliary forces are an extensive bibliography devoted to the German role in the Revolution, an itemization of a handful of other German allied units, and a clarifying Introduction and Conclusion on the German and German-American presence in this great conflict. Dr. Tolzmann has made a valuable contribution to the literature of the American War for Independence by bringing this manuscript to the light of day. Scarce. ; 0.3 x 8.2 x 5.3 Inches; 60 pages
