Synopsis

Chaining the Hudson The Fight for the River in the American Revolution by Lincoln Diamant

Much of the Revolutionary War took was fought along the Hudson River-which for five years was successfully blockaded by American forces by means of a massive chain across the river at West Point. Here is this important story, vividly and dramatically told, from logs, diaries, letters, and with many rare illustrations. In an almost magical sense the reader is drawn back to the time when the country drew its first breath. -The New York Times Brings to life an extraordinary chapter of the Revolution. -Washington Post [The] best account to date of the Revolutionary War activity in the Valley. -Hudson Valley Regional Review Meticulously researched. Reads like good historical fiction. -American History

Reviews

so fascinating, you'll wonder why you never learned about this in high school. * -Times Union, Albany NY *
