- The Major Characters and What Happened to Them

This book focuses on the Southern Theatre in 1780-1781, beginning with the British preparations for the second siege of Charleston and ending with the Battle of Guilford Courthouse. The book also includes two useful features: a Select and Annotated bibliography section and the Major Characters, which gives page-long biographies of principle figures.

I would not suggest this text for someone who is new to the topic of the Southern Theatre, because of its intense focus on only the most pivotal portion of the action of the American Revolution in the South, but rather for someone who is familiar with the general history of the war already and is searching for more in depth information.
