Drums Along the Mohawk Outdoor Drama by Walter D. Edmonds
It’s the year 1777........
Our American Revolution has begun in earnest. The Continental Army has suffered a series of debilitating defeats. Can the patriots ever conceive of winning their independence from the world's most powerful nation? The answer is yes! 1777 marks a turning point in the patriot's struggle for independence. Some of our country’s finest heroes resided in the Mohawk Valley of upstate New York. Back then it was the wild, backwood's interior called...the "Western Frontier".
This version of Drums Along the Mohawk Outdoor Drama by Walter D. Edmonds© focuses on that pivotal year: 1777. It tells through vivid characterizations the reasons behind the famous Battle of Oriskany, commonly known as the bloodiest battle of the American Revolution.
