Book 4 of the Colonial Southeast Series, A Lesser Form of Patriotism tells the bitter-sweet story of the American Revolution as seen through the eyes of southern Loyalists serving in the King's Carolina Rangers, one of the most active military units of the American Revolution.
It is said that during the American Revolution, more American's served in the British forces than in the Continental Army of the United States. This is their story. In this frontier war, there is no Valley Forge, no Saratoga, no Yorktown. It evolves into a struggle that pits brother against brother, and neighbor against neighbor. The heroes and heroines are simple people who believed in their cause as fervently as did those Americans who fought to free themselves from English rule. A Lesser Form of Patriotism tells their story of love, death, courage, loyalty, and defeat as it chronicles the end of a way of life that began when the first English foot stepped ashore in the New World and ended with the closing shots of the American Revolution.
