The great military effectiveness of semitrained local militia is one of the enduring myths of American military history. In this book Ed Gilbert reveals the truth behind this myth, shedding light on who these frontier men actually were and their role in the war of 1812. He chronicles how untrained and ineffective militia forces were transformed into a formidable fighting force through hard campaigning, fierce combat, and Andrew Jackson's equally fierce discipline. Contemporary illustrations and artwork depict the rough life on campaign, the uniforms worn by the militia, and how they fought and won crucial battles against Creek forces before inflicting a stunning defeat on the British Army in 1815, opening up the frontier for the new nation.

Review:

"Ed Gilbert has done a grand job of telling the story of these often forgotten men...Add to it contemporary illustrations with the artwork of Adam Hook, and you have a superlative book on a subject that I found particularly fascinating. I'm positive you will feel the same way once you read this so put the grabs on this title when you come across it at your local shop. You'll find it to be a major myth-buster." --Scott Van Aken, www.modelingmadness.com (April 2009)

"[Frontier Militaiman] surveys ... the actions of untrained men who formed militia forces worthy of historical mention." --California Bookwatch (November 2008)

Book Description:

A colorful narrative, full of fresh first-hand accounts, of what life was really like for the frontier militiaman during the Creek War and War of 1812
