A Way of Life [Book 1 of “Revolutionary Lancaster” Series]


Book 1 in the “Revolutionary Lancaster” series focuses on the impact of the Revolutionary War upon Lancastrians.

SKU: 010000824 Categories: ,


Written by Lancaster newspaper columnist and local historian Jim Kinter, this book provides a stirring account of the impact of the Revolution upon Lancastrians. While the Lancaster area was not the site of any military engagements in the Revolution, its men—privates to generals—saw action in the War from Boston to Yorktowne. 

The Lancaster area was by no means in the quiet backwater of the fight against the British. It played an extremely important role in supplying a seemingly unending flow of material to the war effort of the fledgling nation. 

Lancaster served as a training and marshalling area for both regular and militia troops as well as a campsite for prisoners and the wounded. The sights and the sound of the Revolution left their marks on the minds and lives of all Lancastrians. This is the story which Jim Kinter weaves so well. 

This book is a soft cover, 61 pages. Copyright 1974. It is the first book in the “Revolutionary Lancaster” series.
