Publisher's Summary

In General Peter Muhlenberg: A Virginia Officer of the Continental Line, historian Michael Cecere cuts away the romanticism surrounding this fascinating character to present him as a highly capable and dedicated officer who served for seven long years in America’s War for Independence; a man of faith who held the high ideals of that office in his conduct with fellow officers and regular soldiers alike.

First appointed to lead the 8th Virginia Regiment of the Continental Army, Muhlenberg and his troops served under General Charles Lee in the defense of Charleston in 1776. Sent north and promoted to brigadier-general, Muhlenberg participated in the ensuing battles of Brandywine, Germantown, the winter at Valley Forge, and the major clash at Monmouth Courthouse. In 1780, he returned to Virginia and stood at the forefront of Virginia’s defense when the British invaded in 1781. At Yorktown, Muhlenberg commanded the continental light infantry troops that stormed Redoubt No. 10, sealing Cornwallis’ fate. Focusing on the military career of Muhlenberg, and relying on a judicious amount of primary source material, the author follows Muhlenberg and his troops as they battled some of the most storied adversaries of the war.

The book is published by Westholme Publishing. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks.

"This work is a seminal volume restoring General Muhlenberg to a place of importance." (Mark Maloy, author of Victory or Death: The Battles of Trenton and Princeton)

“A ‘must’ for anyone interested in the struggle to establish this country as an independent nation.” (Norman Fuss, consultant for the American History Museum at Yorktown)

“A fine, outstanding addition to anyone’s library of biographies of our Founding Fathers.” (Randolph G. Flood, American Revolution Consortium of Civic Education)
