Book Description

John Stark (August 28, 1728 – May 8, 1822) was a New Hampshire native who served as a major general in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. He became widely known as the "Hero of Bennington" for his exemplary service at the Battle of Bennington in 1777. Born in Annapolis, Maryland, William Pinkney studied medicine (which he did not practise) and law, becoming a lawyer after his admission to the bar in 1786. After some time practising law in Harford County, Maryland, he participated in Maryland's state constitutional convention.
