Dateline: 1681-1688, Chester County, Pennsylvania. People behaved back then much as we do today.
It’s about spiritual warfare. Just because we can’t see it going on around us right now with our physical eyes doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. It does. So the genre of the novel is speculative historical fiction and family saga, based on biblical truths about the spirit world.
Dateline: Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, 18 October 1770. Land is ceded to the Cherokee Nation by this treaty. What is so interesting about it, in addition to the history, is the Indian marks or signatures reproduced here. Primary source!
The fictional Sherlock Holmes has nothing on William Clayton Jr., in 1690.
Dateline: Jamestowne, 1666, and Philadelphia, 1703-04: Manuel (last name unmentioned) and Antonio Garcia were mulattoes who made their appeals to two colonial government councils and won. Primary sources. Great for teachers and students of history.
To me, there is something special about Honour Clayton Brown (1662-1731?).
Murder in Quaker utopia? What happened?
Dateline: Philadelphia, 1687-1688. The facts are basic and short. The Council took action.
