In 1941, the Pennsylvania Historical Commission translated Casgrain's work.

Collections of Revolutionary War artifacts seldom contain the history of individual items. Who used it? Where was it used? That information is lost. A Sketch of the Virginia Soldier in the Revolution identifies which uniforms and equipment were used by reviewing the documentary evidence. Military records, newspapers, journals and letters provided data from which a "sketch" of the soldier's appearance was drawn. Rather than create a generic soldier, this work concentrates on the infantryman from Virginia. After determining what equipment was used by the Virginians, examples are presente... View more info

Few Americans have heard of the 1749 French expedition into western Pennsylvania and southern Ohio, known as the Céloron Expedition. The limited interest in this trek has often centered on the lead plates that the French buried along the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers.

The French sent Captain Pierre-Joseph Céloron de Blainville with a large force to show the flag and compel the English traders to leave. This book contains the reports of Céloron, the expedition's commander, and the Jesuit ... View more info
