The Insolent Enemy

Length: 252 pages4 hours


The story started when I was in Clayton, New York for a two year stint. It was in this historic area, and along the beautiful St. Lawrence River, that I became interested in the War of 1812. All around were battlegrounds and markers of important sites. I thought of writing an essay but as I researched, I realized that the story of Captain Benjamin Forsyth had yet to be told. I think I have brought the tale and the man to life. I had a lot of help along the way from my wife, Maggie, who accompanied me on long excursions to small towns along the border searching for the waypoints of the raids that had taken place. We had fun and I hope the reader will have as much enjoyment from my book as we did.
