TRUE TO THE OLD FLAG: A Novel of The Loyalists in the American War of Independence [Annotated] (Henty History Series)
Author: George Henty
Publication Date: 2011
With 59 pages of additional articles, references, and bibliographies of recommended reading.
It is hardly necessary to point out the significance of the American Revolution. Untold nonfiction books have been written about it, and it has been the setting for countless novels. But, how many of those novels are written from a Loyalist standpoint—the point of view of Americans who fought FOR the British during that war? That is exactly what Henty has done in True to the Old Flag.
A young man, originally a Bostonian, leaves his life on the frontier to join the American Revolution on the British side. As is typical of Henty books, his path is strewn with numerous action-packed adventures, including the rescue of several distressed damsels, brushes with indians, and numerous other perilous situations. But, at the same time, you are taken step-by-step through the Revolutionary War, from Bunker Hill, to the war in South Carolina.
It is George Henty, the novelist and the history teacher, at his best.
