4 DIAMANT, LINCOLN. Chaining The Hudson: The Fight For The River In The American Revolution.
Carol Publishing Group, Secaucus: 1989. 080651535X / 9780806515359 First Carol Publishing Group Edition. s Softcover. Very good condition. 
Much of the American colonists' struggle with the British took place on the banks of the Hudson River, which served a key role as highway and battlefield. When the Americans drew on substantial iron ore deposits and blast furnaces in the the immediate vicinity, they successfully blockaded the river for almost five years by forging the formidable chain ever, a defensive weapon the British never tested. All of the fear and excitement of war is witnessed here in letters, logs, military orders, and personal diaries - from directives by George Washington to the journal of a humble Continental private. This is history (illustrated with photographs and engravings) and it is drama, a true account that races with the velocity of adventure fiction. Includes an Index.

16 STOUT, NEIL R. The Perfect Crisis: The Beginning Of The Revolutionary War.

At the outset of 1774, few people on either side of the Atlantic Ocean believed that an American Union was possible - by September of that year, it was a reality. The year of "perfect crisis" witnessed the development of the colonial revolt in America from a political protest to an armed rebellion and the consolidation of divisive factions into an effective force of resistance united in a common cause. In this important look at the beginning of the revolutionary war, Neil R. Stout focuses on the period between the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Lexington as the critical turning point in the rebellion and uncovers the campaigns of propaganda and terrorism and the political movements toward representative government in the coloniesprior to April 19, 1775, to reveal a nation already in a state of civil war. Includes an Index.
