    Shortly before the United States Revolutionary war against England, most inhabitants were her loyal subjects.  France had control of much of southern Canada and the “western” lands of the current states of Pennsylvania and Ohio.  Skirmishes abounded for years between English settlers pushing west and French settlers and her Indian accomplices.  The Seven Years War in Europe spilled over to the colonies, where General Wolfe finally defeated the French in Quebec.  Includes depictions of the battles of Forts Duquesne and Necessity in Pennsylvania, and Forts Ticonderoga and William Henry in New York, and Quebec in Canada.

    Few wars have been fought by each side with greater intensity of conviction in the rightness of its cause or with more abundant personal heroism than the War Between the States. The story begins with a great responsibility falling on Vincent Wingfield, the teenage son of a widowed Virginia plantation owner. Vincent must decide what course of action he should take when a problem arises on the plantation. Unlike many stories of this American war, Mr. Henty brings to it a European viewpoint that differs drastically from the current views on the nature and reasons for this struggle. Henty’s "With Lee in Virginia" will introduce the reader to many of the famous battles of the 1860's along with learning much about the character of Robert E. Lee and his lieutenants.
