A Revolutionary Day Along
The book parallels the 1777 British invasion from the Lake Ontario. The road trip begins in Oswego (NY) where British forces would begin the invasion and passes through Bernhard, Rome (Fort Stanwix) and the Oriskany Battlefield where General Nicholas Herkimer and his Tryon County Militia were ambushed on their way to attack the British at Fort Stanwix. From Oriskany, the road trip continues through Utica, Herkimer (Fort Dayton), Fort Herkimer, Fort Klock, Fort Plain, Canajoharie, Stone Arabia and Johnstown where Sir William Johnson would sow the seeds of support for the British among the Six Indian Nations. From Johnstown, the road trip goes through Schoharie and concludes in Schenectady, head of navigation on the Mohawk River during the Revolutionary War.
