An account of a seven-year archaeological investigation near the shoreline of a New Jersey peninsula between the Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers.

The chapters in this book alternate between accounts of the digs and findings, by year, and accounts of the history of this area, traces of which were sought and found.340 pages, 5.5x8.5, (1997), 2006, 5...

Condition: Softcover, Heritage Books, Inc


The period 1771 through 1783 saw the Revolution's fermentation, eruption and resolution. New Jersey was in the middle of it all. Indeed, situated as it was, between the key cities of New York and Philadelphia, it was known as the cock pit of the Revolution and was never very far from the politics or action. Happily, the events of the Revolutionary War period can be observed, almost as one would view a documentary film, with images fashioned from words, rather than by the camera, in the news accounts of the period, both Loyalist and Patriot. A sometimes forgotten resource, news articles reveal ... View more info

A majority of white immigrants to the American Colonies south of New England—and nearly all the Africans—arrived in some form of servitude, either as indentured servants or slaves. Colonial newspapers often published notices seeking the return of runaway servants or slaves, as well as deserters from the military, escapees from jail and even runaway Native American slaves and servants. The notices of runaways provide clues for genealogists and food for thought for those curious as to how the citizens of America’s first century lived. Typically, the notice contained such inf...

Get comfortable and enjoy this riveting adventure in historical fiction. The Retaking of America tells of a takeover attempt in the near future of the United States government by an ancient enemy, assisted by a fifth column of dissatisfied citizens, hostile to the present American power structure and the growing gulf between "haves" and "have-nots." The plot was hatched in the closing days of the American Revolution, at the command of King George III, who swore America forever was to be Britain's. It was kept alive among the descendants of the original plotters, an obligation p... View more info

Going to Court in Texas, drawn from original sources, depicts the early days of the practice of law in Texas through the eyes of one of its ablest practitioners, Charles DeMorse. DeMorse was a lawyer from New York who came to Texas in 1836 to fight in the War for Independence and never left. For forty-six years, he practiced law and was the owner and editor of The Northern Standard, a weekly newspaper that would become the second largest in circulation in Texas. At that time in Texas, the populations of individual counties were never large enough to require a resident judge or bar. Instead, ju... View more info
