The West Branch of the Susquehanna in the American Revolution

Written by Robert Swope, Jr.
The West Branch Valley is located in northern Pennsylvania but its history during the Revolution is entwined with the history of the frontier fighting and the battlefields of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. This book is not only about what took place during the Revolution in the West Branch Valley but also about the men of the West Branch Valley who went off to distant battlefields. It is a detailed history and names a lot of families that lived along the West Branch of the Susquehanna in the 1700's. Some of the topics that are noted in the book are: the Yankee Pennamite War, the Fair Play men, the battle of Fort Freeland, and Hartley's expedition. There were over 50 documented Indian attacks in the West Branch Valley during the war. When you read how brutal the fighting was, it was a wonder there was anyone left.
