Book Description Houghton Mifflin. 1 Cloth(s), 2011. hard. Book Condition: New. In 1810 the wilds of West Florida—today parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, as well as Florida's panhandle—were populated by a mix of former British colonials, Spanish royalists, and American frontier settlers. Britain had ceded the territory to Spain, but in the Napoleonic era Spain's increasing mismanagement of the region impelled a band of American settlers, led by boatman and storekeeper Reuben Kemper and his brothers, to institute a vigilante force, revolt against Spain, and draft their own constitution. Peopled throughout with such lively and enterprising figures, this book by the author of The Pirates Laffite is a colorful history of a forgotten rebellion. By the time President Madison sent troops to occupy the territory after the Louisiana Purchase, the independent Republic of West Florida had already been in existence for 78 days."A significant study of an obscure but highly revealing moment in American history. Not only does [William] Davis cast a bright light into these murky corners of our national past, he does so with a grace and clarity equal to the best historical writing today."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 400.

Book Description HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 150 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. When Britain ceded the territory of West Florida what is now Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida to Spain in 1783, America was still too young to confidently fight in one of Europe s endless territorial contests. So it was left to the settlers, bristling at Spanish misrule, to establish a foothold in the area. Enter the Kemper brothers, whose vigilante justice culminated in a small band of American residents drafting a constitution and establishing a new government. By the time President Madison sent troops to occupy the territory, assert U.S. authority under the Louisiana Purchase, and restore order, West Florida s settlers had already announced their independence, becoming our country s shortest-lived rogue republic. Meticulously researched and populated with the colorful characters that make American history a joy, this is the story of a young country testing its power on the global stage and a lost chapter in how the frontier spirit came to define American character. The first treatment of this little-known historical moment, The Rogue Republic shows how hardscrabble frontiersmen and gentleman farmers planted the seeds of civil war, marked the dawn of Manifest Destiny, and laid the groundwork for the American empire.

Book Description Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, U.S.A., 2011. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. In 1810 the wilds of West Florida -- what is now parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida -- were populated by a mix of former British colonials, Spanish royalists, and American frontier settlers looking for freedom and opportunity. Though the territory seemed a natural candidate for American expansion, the young nation was not ready to confidently stake a claim. So it was left to settlers bristling at Spanish misrule to establish a foothold. Enter the Kemper brothers and a small band of American residents, whose decision to take matters into their own hands culminated in their drafting a constitution and establishing a new government. By the time President Madison sent troops to formally occupy the territory, assert U.S. authority under the Louisiana Purchase, and restore order, West Florida's settlers had already announced their independence, becoming -- at seventy-eight days -- our country's shortest-lived, rogue "republic." Meticulously researched and populated with fiery characters, this is the story of a young country testing its power on the global stage and a lost chapter in how the frontier spirit came to define our nation's legacy.
