Seeds of empire : the American revolutionary conquest of the Iroquois by Max M Mintz( Book )

"The American Revolution was a struggle not only for independence, but for the lands of Native Americans. The jewel in this conflict was the upstate New York domain of the Iroquois Six Nations, where fertile river valleys were a magnet for farmers weary of New England's stubborn soil." "While at first intentionally neutral, the Iroquois were soon forced to choose sides between either rebel or British forces. Seeds of Empire recreates the events surrounding General John Sullivan's scorched-earth campaign against the Six Nations of the American Indians of New York and the Eastern territories in 1779, following the surrender of General John Burgoyne's entire British army at the Battle of Saratoga. Abandoned by both the rebels and the British at the end of the revolution and devastated by the ravages of war, the Iroquois found themselves powerless to resist the post-Revolutionary takeover and peopling of their heartland by the new American nation."--Jacket
The generals of Saratoga : John Burgoyne & Horatio Gates by Max M Mintz( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lively and colorful work offers a fresh account of the Saratoga campaign of 1777 through the lives of its opposing generals -- John Burgoyne, the British commander, and Horatio Gates, the American (but British-born) commander. The book vividly portrays the two men and the events that developed around them. It is the fullest discussion ever written about both the American and British dimensions of this campaign, the only engagement in the Revolutionary War in which an all-American army captured a major British force. Max M. Mintz has combed the letters and diaries of survivors to craft on-the-scene descriptions of the British taking of Ticonderoga, the slaughter at Hubbardton, the victory of American militia at Bennington, the two hard-fought battles of Saratoga, and the surrender of Burgoyne. Throughout the book new insights are revealed: Burgoyne's difficulties with his superiors, the deep roots of Gates's quarrels with George Washington and Benedict Arnold, the factors that caused Burgoyne to choose the land rather than the water route from Lake Champlain to the Hudson River, and the broken promise that misled Burgoyne to believe that Sir Henry Clinton would come to save him. - Jacket flap
