  • Your hosts: Peg Coleman - author, Montgomery County, A Pictorial History, Paul of Montgomery, Mama Wears Two Aprons, Around Germantown. Maryland Patriot. In the historical novel Maryland Patriot, Paul Drury, 16, leaves his log cabin home in rural Montgomery County, Maryland and joins George Washington's Continental Army. With the troops he marches to Annapolis, sails down Chesapeake Bay into Virginia, marches to the Carolinas and fights in the major battles of the Revolutionary War's Southern Campaign. He serves under great heroes and one coward, meets Andrew Jackson in a prisoner of war jail and is right there in Yorktown when Cornwallis lays down his sword. A swashbuckling good read with lots of action, tragedy, young love and family devotion.
    Recipient of the Royce Hanson Award for 2008.
