Zanesville, OH [?]: Ebenezer Zane Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, 2000. Presumed Limited Edition, marked as copy 82. Wraps. ,308 pages. Illustrations. Index. The Table of Contents includes: Military Veterans and Other Patriots of the American Revolutionary War; Locations of Graves of Veterans and Other Patriots; Possible Veterans or Other Patriots for Whom No Satisfactory Proof of Service Has Been Found; Patriots Who Lived in Belmont, Harrison, or Monroe Counties but Who Are Buried in One of the Other Fifteen Counties of this Series; Brief Summary of the American Revolutionary War, Index. This book is the first volume of a series. There are a few exceptions but it primarily covers the Ohio counties of Belmont, Harrison, and Monroe. It was the plan of the Ebenezer Zane Chapter of Sons of the American Revolution to recognize, to remember, and to honor all soldiers and other patriots of the American Revolution in eighteen counties. The ultimate goal was to see that all graves of these men and women buried in these counties who contributed to our freedom from England are marked or memorials for them are placed somewhere where burial sites no longer exist. Close to half the people who have been identified already do not have markers. The book serves two purposes. Fist it tells who is buried here and what we have learned about them. Second, the sale of the book will be used to cover the costs to place government markers on all unmarked patriots graves and to restore small old cemeteries with which on or more Revolutionary War soldiers or other patriots are buried. This series was recognized as a multi-year project.
Durham: Duke University Press, 1987. Presumed First Edition/First Printing. Hardcover. xv, , 205,  pages. Notes. Bibliography. Index. Signed inscription by author on fep. Jonathan Odell (25 September 1737 – 25 November 1818) was a Loyalist poet who lived during the American Revolution. Odell was born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1737 to John and Temperance Odell. He graduated from Princeton University (at the time known as the College of New Jersey) in 1754. Although he had studied medicine, instead of becoming a doctor he joined the Church of England ministry. As a minister he preached at parish priest at Burlington and Mount Holly, both in New Jersey. When the revolution broke out Odell became a strong loyalist and wrote poetry promoting the loyalist cause. He was brought before the New Jersey Provincial Congress for such actions and on July 20, 1776, he was ordered to sign a loyalty oath and remain within eight miles of the Burlington County courthouse. In December of that year, he fled to New York, with the help of local citizens, and served as an administrator and satiric poet-propagandist for the British. After the war in 1784 he emigrated to New Brunswick, Canada, where he received the post of provincial secretary as a reward for his loyalty. He remained in New Brunswick and died in Fredericton. Odell was portrayed by George Sanders as a highly intelligent but cynical loyalist in the 1955 Hollywood film The Scarlet Coat.
New York, N.Y. Alfred A. Knopf, 2010. First Edition [stated], presumed first printing. Hardcover. x, 299,  pages. Includes Preface, Acknowledgments, Notes, and Index. Includes seven chapters each addressing a sequential chronological period. Joseph John Ellis (born July 18, 1943) is an American historian whose work focuses on the lives and times of the founders of the United States of America. He entered the United States Army in August 1969 and spent three years teaching history at the United States Military Academy at West Point before being discharged a captain in 1972. Ellis later joined the faculty at Mount Holyoke College. In 1979 he was made full professor and later became the Ford Foundation Professor of History. American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson won a National Book Award and Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation won the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for History. Both these books were bestsellers. Together with histories of the founding of the republic, since 1993 Ellis has written biographies about individual early presidents and, in 2010, a joint biography of John and Abigail Adams. Interested in how men shaped and were shaped by their times, he writes with an emphasis on character. Ellis is notable as a respected scholar whose work has also gained popular success. In 2004, the critic Jonathan Yardley wrote of him: "Ellis doubtless is now the most widely read scholar of the Revolutionary period, and thus probably the most influential as well."
