Description

This is the first modern biography of Patrick Ferguson (1744-80) -- famous as the designer of the British Army's first breech-loading rifle and one of Scotland's most courageous and engaging military heroes. Rebellion in America gave Ferguson opportunity to demonstrate his military talents until crippling injury threatened his life and career. He overcame his disability with inspiring determination and wit, finally dying, sword in hand, while commanding Loyal American Troops at King's Mountain, North Carolina. The author has had access to family letters, including 21 years' worth of personal letters from Ferguson to his sister.
