520 1 _a"When examining the course of the American Revolution in the South, one often finds references to the activities of Thomas Brown, a key loyalist on the southern frontier. History, however, has relegated Brown to the status of a dark, almost mythical figure, remembering him most as the man who, by hanging thirteen patriots as vindication for his treatment at the hands of the Sons of Liberty, embodied the villainy of the king himself." "In the course of bringing Thomas Brown from the shadows of myth into the full light of history, The King's Ranger explores not only military history but also such aspects of the American past as colonial migration, upheaval in the backcountry, Indian diplomacy, the British evacuation of the southernmost colonies, and the formation of new settlements in the Caribbean."--BOOK JACKET.
