New Hampshire was one of the first colonies to declare its independence from British rule. The patriotism and courage demonstrated in that act were by no means unprecedented--just before they began the Revolution, state residents attacked British-occupied Fort William and Mary in December 1774. While no battles were fought within the borders of the Granite State, these loyal sons of liberty contributed more men than any other state. Author Bruce D. Heald, PhD, celebrates the achievements and experiences of New Hampshire throughout the American Revolution. Learn how General John Stark gained battle experience in the French and Indian War that allowed him to successfully lead the First New Hampshire Regiment. Heald offers an in-depth description of the state's regiments, forts (including the Fort at Number 4 in Charlestown) and distinguished Patriots in addition to the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
