[Drums Along The Mohawk: The Story of the American Revolution on the New York Frontier] revwar.gif (11117 bytes)

Trouble on the Wind...
The year is 1777. Rumors are spreading of not one, but two armies of invaders who (the rumors say) will come down Lake Champlain from the north, and from the British stronghold Oswego to the west. In both armies are red and white men who have been driven from their homes and their families. They're coming to take back what's theirs and to turn the tables on their enemies - their neighbors who cast them out as traitors.

It's just another day in the Mohawk Valley...
