Acclaimed author Chris Formant tells the forgotten story of how a group of citizen soldiers from Maryland fought a heroic battle against elite British forces to preserve the Continental Army and save the life of General George Washington. In this epic adventure based on scholarly research, two young aspiring Baltimore merchants, one white and one black, march to Brooklyn as part of the Maryland militia. Under-trained and under-equipped, they would soon be on the front lines of one of the most decisive battles for American independence.
Formant immerses us in their dedication and their sacrifice as he weaves an epic tale, which includes actual historical figures. These all but forgotten men who held back the British made it possible for Washington to evacuate hundreds of soldiers to Manhattan and create a new military strategy that turned the tide of the Revolutionary War.
