Where Once They Stood: The Colonial and Early Republic Ancestors of Alpheus Appenheimer and America Swango

ByBJ Omanson

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
The colonial and Early Republic ancestors of Alpheus Appenheimer & America Swango included Pilgrims, Puritans, militiamen, frontiersmen, longhunters, "Overmountain Men," rangers & scouts. They helped to open frontiers in seven states, including Kentucky, Tennessee & the "Lost State" of Franklin, & fought in every major American war from the Pequot War to the War of 1812. Three were at Point Pleasant, three at Valley Forge, three with George Rogers Clark, at least thirteen at Kings Mountain, and twenty-three were either killed or taken captive by Wampanoags, Narragansetts, Delaware, Shawnee, Cherokee or Wyandotts. And then there was "Little Abe" Swango from Kentucky who carried his longrifle on foot for over 1500 miles, from the Thames Campaign in Canada where Tecumseh was killed, to the Battle of New Orleans where the cream of British regulars met the squirrel-hunters from Kentucky and Tennessee.
