Summary
  • "Winning a reputation for reckless bravery in a succession of major battles and sieges, John Laurens distinguished himself as one of the most zealous, self-sacrificing participants in the American Revolution. A native of South Carolina and son of Henry Laurens, president of the continental Congress, John devoted his entire adult life to securing American independence. In this comprehensive biography Gregory D. Massey recounts the young Laurens's wartime record - a riveting tale in its own right - and finds that even more remarkable than his military escapades were his revolutionary ideas concerning the rights of African Americans."--Jacket
