So I had a $50 USD gift card for Amazon and used it on this:

The Battle of St. Louis, the Attack on Cahokia, and the American Revolution in the West Hardcover January 1, 2017
by Stephen L. Kling Jr. (Author), Kristine Sjostrom (Author), & 1 more
5.0 out of 5 stars 10 ratings

Haven't more than opened and flipped through it but WOW: full of maps and illustrations, most in color, with lots of scenarios for gaming. Looks like a labor of love by local historians.

More later as I get into it.

I have it also and agree with you. A fabulous book. Thoroughly recommended.

Yeah, I think I did; sorry!

Well, you got my attention. Being born and bred in St.Louis, I had not read much about what happened in this area. I looked on Amazon and I noticed Mr. Kling has another book on the cavalry used here during the American Revolution. On my Shopping List now. 12 in stock.

One of my friends just loaned me Kling's book on cavalry -- Cavalry in the Wilderness: Cavalry in the Western Theater of the American Revolution and the French and Indian War. It has wonderful illustrations and maps.

'The Long Knife' by James Thom is an enjoyable fictional treatment of events in the Illinois country during the AWI

I'll pile on here as well. Excellent book. Well written. Amazing color illlustrations and artwork. Lots of information that relating to things not generally known. Besides, who amongst us knows a great deal about the AWI in that area?
