A. E. Miller, Charleston 1821 - Publisher's blue paper covered boards, rebacked at a later date with paper spine. Provenance: Arthur Middleton, Jr. (signature on front endpaper); Library of Congress duplicate (inked stamps and booklabel) South Carolina Signer Arthur Middleton grandson's copy of a cornerstone on the history of the American Revolution in the South. A basic source for the history of the American Revolution in the southern colonies, based largely on material the author inherited from his father, William Henry Drayton, who was an active leader of the Revolution. The author served twice as governor of South Carolina, and was deeply interested in its history from an early age. This history of the early stages of the Revolution in South Carolina was the product of his retirement, and was published a year before his death. It remains one of the standard works. One of the maps shows forts Sullivan and Moultrie, while the other shows the positions in the 1776 campaign in the Carolina upcountry against the Cherokees.
