General Nathanael Greene and the American Revolution in the South

Filed under: Early America,NC History,New books,Wars — John Maass @ 7:38 am

I am pleased to announce the publication of General Nathanael Greene and the American Revolution in the South by the Univ. of South Carolina Press, a copy of which I received yesterday.  In it is my essay, “’With humanity, justice, and moderation’: Nathanael Greene and the Reconciliation of the Disaffected in the South, 1780-1783.”

Here are 2 blurbs:

“The Revolutionary War in the South increasingly absorbs the attention of historians and of the public. Nathanael Greene was central to that war’s outcome, and with the recent completion of the publication of his papers, we have gained more and more insight into his character and his role in the ultimate victory. The essays in this volume represent a major push forward. Here we begin to learn about Greene as a manager, as a manipulator, as a thinker, and as a fighter. Highly recommended!”—Wayne E. Lee, Professor of History, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chair of the Curriculum in Peace, War, and Defense

“These chapters represent an insightful commentary on Nathanael Greene. It draws from a variety of authors who have studied Greene and his life. Each author brings depth to examining one aspect of Greene’s life. There is much food for thought here because the chapters examine not only Greene’s military expertise but his social and political acumen as he progresses from Northern merchant soldier to Southern general and planter. It is clear that Greene, the man, changed as the war progressed and his education received practical training in all facets of being a citizen soldier.”—Lawrence E. Babits, George Washington Distinguished Professor (ret) and author of A Devil of a Whipping: The Battle of Cowpens
