Re: Old dog learns new tricks
In Response To: Old dog learns new tricks ()

Thanks to a lead from Tony Dorty, I contacted the folks at the Costal Heritage Society in Savanna, re black troops in French colonial service who participated on the American side during the siege of Savanna by the British in l779.

Nice folks at CHS can provide copies of following articles:
John D. Garrigus: "Catalyst or Castrophe? Saint-Dominque's Free Men of Color and the Battle of Savannah, l779-l782 (paper presented at the 24th Annual Conference of the Association of Caribbean Historians).

George P. Clark, "The Role oof the Haitian Volunteers at Savanna in l779" (originally published in Phylon).

I was not, however, given presentation/publication dates for the above.

The CHS also can provide a copy of a print originally produced the The Company of Military Historians: "Chasseurs Volontaires of Saint-Dominque, Savannah and Grenada, l779-l783"
