William Washington, Cavalryman of the Revolution - Stephen E. Haller. The story of the Revolutionary War in the Carolinas has been incomplete without a biography of Lt. Col. William Washington, cousin of George Washington. William Washington belonged to a small cadre of key field officers who served with distinction in the Continental as an infantry officer at Trenton (1776), but he transferred to the Continental Light Dragoons and served in the Middle States (1777-1779). He is best remembered as a cavalry commander in the South (1780-1781), where he fought in all of the major battles of Gen. Nathanael Greene's campaign to drive the British from the Carolinas. So valuable were his contributions to the Carolina campaign, that Greene referred to Washington as his "arm." (2001), 2007, 5½x8½, paper, index, 256 pp.
