Product Overview

1908. With an account of the author's desperate leap from a swiftly moving train of cars, and a fatiguing tramp of 1,000 miles through three Confederate states, in making his escape from a Prison-pen. Drake was Captain Ninth N.J. Volunteers and Bt. Brig.-General by special act of N.J. Legislature; Historian Ninth N.J. Volunteers, Past Historian Medal of Honor Legion, U.S.A., and author of Fast and Loose in Dixie and Across the Continent in Red Breeches. The sketches of the Revolutionary War are founded upon legends I fondly heard when a youth from revolutionary sires and their descendants, as well as from official reports and statements appearing in the newspapers of the period, while those relating to the Civil War furnished by the actors, some of whom are still living, are given that the heroic actions of my comrades may not be effaced by time, nor their wondrous deeds deprived of renown.
