The Battle of Minisink Paperback – September 28, 2014
About the Author
The author of this book, when asked why he selected the Battle of Minisink as the topic for his second volume on upper Delaware Valley history, stated that because of the slipshod treatment the battle had received from previous historians and its many unanswered problems, it posed a challenge which he was eager to accept. A personal interest also motivated the writer because of his kinship with the family of Captain Bezaleel Tyler, a casualty in the engagement. Dr. Vernon Leslie’s research in the story of man in the upper Delaware Valley began with the archaeology of the area, a study to which he devoted over forty years. The results of his research are set forth in a previous volume – Faces in Clay. The recipient of many awards and honorary memberships, Dr. Leslie, who holds the degree of Doctor of Science, honoris causa, from Susquehanna University, has now turned his interest from prehistory to history. Although he spent a teaching career of thirty-eight years in the field of foreign languages, he was also licensed to teach history in the public schools of Pennsylvania.
