Today’s society needs independently-minded people as did the country trying to establish itself then,” Ford believes. “And, as we did then, we need leaders who are sincerely for the country as a hole, not just a segment of it.
Auburn, NY (PRWEB) December 18, 2012
With his new book, “In All Cases Whatsoever” (published by AuthorHouse), author Howard S. Ford pens a fresh story about the American Revolution, writing of diverse and free men fighting to defend their homes.
“In All Cases Whatsoever” tells the story of Jamie Claveraque, a young Englishman who, along with his bride, is invited to the American Colonies where they adopt the American cause. He joins the army, as does his best friend, a portraitist named Crispin. A successful New York City merchant and rebel spy befriends them and is outlawed by the British.
Jamie is ordered by Washington to fight at Fort Stanwix where the British are laying siege as part of General Burgoyne’s campaign. The redcoat and Indian ambush at Oriskany is a disastrous setback to the rebels, but set the stage for a bizarre victory leading to the defeat of Burgoyne’s army and was the turning point of the war.
Each of Ford’s characters is uniquely interesting and lives his or her life as colonial conditions demanded. They persevere in their personal lives, adding to the common benefit and to the country about to come out of war.
“Today’s society needs independently-minded people as did the country trying to establish itself then,” Ford believes. “And, as we did then, we need leaders who are sincerely for the country as a whole, not just a segment of it.”
