About the Author

Gavin K. Watt is president of the Museum of Applied Military History, a confederation of some 450 volunteer historical animators, but he is perhaps best known as a founder and commanding officer of the recreated King's Royal Yorkers. He is the author of Burning of the Valleys: Daring Raids from Canada against the New York Frontier in the Fall of 1780 (Dundurn, 1996).

Praise For…

"Watt's account [is] well worth the effort. He assists the reader with maps and a 'comparative chronology,' as well as a substantial index. This book, 'twenty-five years in the making' according to the author, will be a definitive account of the St Leger expedition."

"Gavin Watt is known for his exhaustively researched and meticulously referenced accounts of early Canadian history. He never lets that get in the way of readability, however, and this account of one episode during the American Revolution follows in that tradition." - Canadian Military History Book Review Supplement, Summer 2004
