"Just a short note to thank you for spending your time and expertise in making a fascinating presentation to our SAR Cascade Centennial Chapter today. All of us left with a much better understanding of the Battle of Assunpink Creek and its strategic importance to America's ultimate victory in the Revolutionary War. You are clearly an authority on the topic and covered the various considerations of this battle beautifully. It certainly fulfilled one of my goals as chapter president to have programs at our chapter meetings that relate directly to the Revolutionary War and are presented by subject matter experts. "
—DICK PAUL, President, Cascade Centennial Chapter, Washington State Society of the Sons of the American Revolution - February 3, 2024

"This is an impressive piece of scholarship. I doubt that the average reader would spend the time I did reading the Notes and Bibliography, but reading between the well-crafted lines I could not help but appreciate the determined tedium that must have gone into searching all of those quality sources to reference and support with quotes and landmarks the action you were explaining."

"I'm writing to say I love The Battle of Harlem Heights.... Even though I've read just about everything on the battle and have led walking tours over its landscape, I learned a great deal from your book (and confirmed a few things that I wasn't quite sure about). Anyways, kudos and thank you for writing such a well-written and researched book."
—MARK SATLOF, Battle of Harlem Heights tour guide - April 26, 2023

My great, great, great grandfather was at the Cannonade of Trenton and the Battle of Princeton as a member of the Northumberland Militia.
