The Bloody Field of Fame


 Originally published in the mid 19th century, this edited, combined, and updated version of Elias Darnell and William Atherton's journals of General Winchester's ill-fated River Raisin campaign, shines a light on a forgotten, yet important moment of American history. Though the War of 1812 is little remembered, this conflict solidified the United States as a sovereign nation, and affirmed the treaties and promises of the American Revolution.


Including two other participant accounts of the engagement and their being taken captive by the British-allied Native Americans, maps, lithographs, engravings, and artwork, this new version of these important early-American journals follow along in the bloody footprints of the men who fought in the largest battle to ever take place on Michigan soil, and one that would rally men to 
"Remember the Raisin" and lead them to victory and assured independence.
