No battle or even minor skirmish took place within Fauquier’s borders during the Revolutionary War. In a quiet county, remote from the maelstrom, however, the average man could view the great panorama of human conflict and decide for himself the extent of his involvement. The men who went to war from Fauquier, for the most part, did so because they believed it to be their duty. Many remained behind but contributed heavily to the cause. By accident of geography and the fortunes of war, Fauquier County was ideally situated to accomplish that purpose. This book looks at the Revolution through the eyes of a soldier, and when possible offers essential biographical information.
