<strong> The Great Warpath: British Military Sites from Albany to Crown Point </strong> - David R. Starbuck. The waterway that runs between Albany and Canada contains the richest cluster of eighteenth-century military sites in the US. Fort William Henry and Fort Ticonderoga experienced fierce conflict during the French and Indian War, while the Saratoga Battlefield evokes the drama of the American Revolution. While military historians have told and retold stories of the area's battles and generals, archeologist David R. Starbuck records the daily lives of soldiers, officers, and camp followers by examining the many objects and artifacts they left behind. Enhanced by 150 photographs and drawings, Starbuck's interpretation of the journals, huts, pottery, ammunition, and many other artifacts founds at encampments and forts in the Lake Champlain, Lake George, and Hudson River area vividly re-creates the difficulties of soldiering. Because Starbuck and his crews unearthed many of the discoveries themselves, this work offers the reader a compelling first-hand account of colonial battles and the men who fought them. 1999, 7x10, paper, index, 224 pp. </br> 999-191998 </br>ISBN:  0874519039
