Andrew J. Wahll
2003, 5˝x8˝, paper, 398 pp, Heritage Books
In 1764, the Canceaux began a voyage of 12 years during which the officers and men performed survey work used in the creation of one of the most important and magnificent coastal marine atlases ever produced covering 3,000 miles of New England coastline. In 1775, under the gathering storm clouds of the American Revolution, the Canceaux was redirected to undertake an expedition along the coast of the District of Maine to assert the authority of the crown. The Canceaux, under these Admiralty orders, participated in the bombardment and subsequent destruction of the thriving seaport of Falmouth in the District of Massachesetts.The Canceaux's logs were kept by commander Lieut. Henry Mowat, R. N. and sailing master Ensign William Hogg, R.N., aboard the sloop of war, while surveying for the Atlantic Neptune along the coast of the District of Maine, and undertaking the Falmouth Expedition. The log contains details on supplies, presence and movements of ships nearby, ship routine including discipline, court martials, weaponry, significant weather events and activities of the surveyors. Maps and illustrations enhance this valuable work.

16 The English Ancestry and Homes of the Pilgrim Fathers : Who Came to Plymouth on the Mayflower in 1620, the Fortune in 1621, and the Anne and the Little James in 1623
Charles Edward Banks
(1929), 2002, 5˝x8˝, paper, indices, 198 pp, Heritage Books
Get to know the men and women who sailed to the New World. Separate fact from fiction. Made famous by the Longfellow poem, John Alden, was not actually a pilgrim on the Mayflower; he was employed as a cooper to watch over the kegs of beer. William Brewster was an important leader of the Pilgrims, while Stephen Hopkins was an important member of the first exploring party sent to find a suitable place for habitation at Plymouth. William Mullins was the father of the famous Priscilla. Although they have no claim to fame, William Brewster’s children—Love, Wrestling, and Fear—are mentioned. All of these facts and more are contained in this painstakingly researched book. You will find biographical sketches of 112 passengers who sailed on the first four ships to New England. These sketches include information on the passengers’ origins, family connections, and later histories. The author begins with historical evidence then presents the passengers on the Mayflower, Fortune, Anne and Little James in alphabetical order by ship. Each sketch contains all known facts regarding place of residence in England, parentage and ancestry of the passengers.

17 CD: Oaths Of Allegiance In Colonial New England
Charles Evans
(1922), 2004, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and MAC, 64 pp, Heritage Books
This work, originally published by the American Antiquarian Society, chronicles the various oaths of allegiance which New England colonists were required to take at one time or another prior to American Independence. While the author has omitted the simple oaths of office required of military or civilian officers of the colony or Crown, he has otherwise included all oaths to which the general populace of New England were required to swear their allegiance. Mr. Evans weaves verbatim transcriptions of the oaths into the narrative fabric of an historical essay which gives the context for each oath and, in a number of instances, furnishes facsimiles of the 17th- or 18th-century documents under study. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.

19 Necessary Virtue: The Pragmatic Origins of Religious Liberty in New England
Charles P. Hanson
288 pages, 6 x 9, cloth, University of Virginia Press
Virulent anti-Catholicism was a hallmark of New England society from the first Puritan settlements to the eve of the American Revolution and beyond. Thus America's tactical decision during the Revolution to form alliances with Catholics in Canada and France ignited an awkward debate. The paradox arising out of this partnership has been left virtually unexamined by previous historians of the Revolution.
In Necessary Virtue Charles P. Hanson explores the disruptive effects of the American Revolution on the religious culture of New England Protestantism. He examines the efforts of New Englanders to make sense of their own shifting ideas of Catholicism and anti-Catholicism and traces the "necessary virtue" of religious toleration to its origins in pragmatic cultural politics. To some patriots, abandoning traditional anti-Catholicism meant shedding an obsolete relic of the intolerant colonial past; others saw it as a temporary concession to be reversed as soon as possible. Their Tory opponents meanwhile assailed them all as hypocrites for making common cause with the "papists" they had so recently despised. What began as a Protestant crusade succeeded only with Catholic help and later culminated in the First Amendment's formal separation of church and state. The Catholic contribution to American independence was thus controversial from the start.
In this felicitously written and informative book, Hanson raises questions about difference, tolerance, and the role of religious belief in politics and government that help us see the American Revolution in a new light. Necessary Virtue is timely in pointing to the historical contingency and, perhaps, the fragility of the church-state separation that is very much a poltical and legal issue today.

About Author
Charles P. Hanson is Assistant Professor of History at Collegio dell'Adriatico in Trieste, Italy.

"Necessary Virtue has implications for many areas of research in Revolutionary politics and religion. Hanson has found some remarkable sources, ranging from Revolutionary soldiers' diaries to Quebecois episcopal visitation records to reconstruct a wonderfully polyvalent acount of how such historic enemies came to humanize one another through common cause and common experience." --Stephen A. Marini, Wellesley College
