Queen Anne's War: The Second Contest for North America, 1702-1713

Queen Anne’s War: The Second Contest for North America, 1702-1713. Although King William’s War (1689-1697) had established the basic disputes between New France and the English colonies, the conflict had resolved little beyond making it clear that the smaller French colony was more than capable of defending itself. When news of the War of Spanish Succession (1701-1714), or Queen Anne’s War as it would become known in North America, arrived in 1702, few envisioned that the resumption of the previous conflict would grow. to engulf eastern North America from Newfoundland to Florida, pitting the Spanish, English, and French colonies along with their respective native allies began a concerted contest for control of the continent. From the storming of Spanish St. Augustine and the opening shots along the Maine frontier, through the implementation of a series of profit-driven Indian Wars and the destruction of the Spanish mission system in Georgia and Florida, to the direct involvement of Britain in the closing days of the conflict.

Recreates the world of early North American expansion, providing riveting accounts of the battles across settlements and wilderness, as well as the motives, conditions, triumphs, and failures of the Europeans and their respective Native American allies. Based on English, French, and Spanish sources, this describes the economic and geopolitical ramifications of the war that reshaped North America. It also reveals the sense of independence emerging in the colonies, from Puritan New England to plantation South Carolina, at the close of the war. $35.00 USD

Fort Ticonderoga: The Last Campaigns: The War in the North, 1777-1783. During the American Revolution, Fort Ticonderoga dominated north-south communications in upstate New York and was considered the Key to the Continent. American efforts to defend the fort in June against British Lieutenant General John Burgoyne’s 1777 campaign entailed political and military intrigue, bungling, heroism, and ultimately a narrow escape for the Continental and provincial forces under Major General Arthur St. Clair.

The loss of Ticonderoga stunned patriot morale and ignited one of the greatest political firestorms of the war. But the fortunes of war turned. Two months later, the rebels mounted a sensational-if little known-counter-attack on Ticonderoga that had major implications for Burgoyne’s eventual defeat at Saratoga in October. Yet Saratoga brought no peace, and Ticonderoga would be central to additional military and political maneuverings – many of them known only to specialist historians – that would keep the region on edge until the end of the war in 1783. $35.00 USD
