One remarkable man started it all. His family followed suit. Readers can witness what this admirable family did In Pursuit of Freedom as co-authors Dr. Linda Seifert and Katy Dodd tell their fascinating story.
In Pursuit of Freedom chronicles the life and deeds of the Gassaway family from 1500’s England to 1840’s America. It records the stages and progress of the Nicholas Gassaway family and how they fought for life and liberty in America. In sharing their story, the authors have tried to illustrate the public service, political leadership, and citizenship in the greatest sense shown by many members of the Gassaway family.
Utilizing source materials found in a mass of contemporary documents in relation to public affairs, newspapers, and periodicals extending more than three hundred fifty years, the authors attempt to show the struggles that Nicholas Gassaway faced before and after his arrival in America. They have also highlighted the contribution Nicholas and his family provided to the founding of and developing life in America.
