Dunkerly deserves great credit for undertaking this book and for pursuing his research on it despite snakes and spiders and swamps, the sort of hazards that to most writers are merely metaphorical--that snake of a collector who will not share, that spider darting out with venomous criticism, that swamp full of agenda-driven reviewers. Dunkerly "tried to track down primary sources (diaries, military reports, newspapers, journals, receipts) and walk the ground where events occurred." He took footwork literally: "I drove hundreds of miles, walked miles of old roads, drove to obscure battle sites, and walked many city streets." He would agree passionately with what I call in MELVILLE BIOGRAPHY "The Footsteps Theory of Biography." More than that, he is plainly the sort of decent, open man who makes friends with others who are passionate about his subject. And be grateful: this is a book that might have been impossible to write in another decade, when more good local authorities are dead and when more historic sites have been paved over. Anyone interested in Revolutionary history has to be grateful to Dunkerly.

Raising the matter of terminology, Whig, Loyalist, Patriots, Dunkerly says "Literature often refers to the two groups as Patriots and Tories; however, I prefer the terms Whig and Loyalist, to remove any negative connotations or sense of moral superiority." This decision is to impose half-hearted Political Correctness onto historicity. Mel Gibson may have ruined "Patriot" for the present generation of historians and the next, too, but in fact "patriot" is not the historically correct term for the rebels. The great search engine of the Will Graves-C. Leon Harris SCAR transcriptions of pension applications under the law of 1832 shows 358 occurrences of "patriot," many of them editorial.

I enjoyed this book very much! I was familiar with bits and pieces of Rev War history in Eastern NC but this really gives the reader a very good understanding of what happened during this time period! The author also explains where these events took place in relation to modern locations as well as their current condition (provided they still exist).
I can recommend this to anyone interested in the Rev War as it relates to Eastern NC!!
