"Several medical books. But this is his first book related to history so if the topic interests you get a copy of the new book revolutionary surgeons my online recommendation is a phd thesis called loyalism in south carolina. Seventeen sixty five to seventeen eighty five by robert woodward barnwell junior. It's a close look at the loyalists in south carolina before during and after the revolution south carolina was particularly divided colony with some rather hardcore patriots. As well as some very committed loyalists navigating the war and ended up on. The losing side was certainly a difficult proposition and this work covers that pretty well. The thesis was written in nineteen forty one. It contains hundreds of well-researched pages on the topic and the author later served as a historian for the us air force. The thesis loyalism in south carolina is available archive dot org and is always included direct links on my website and blog go blog dot com ref podcast dot com for more details. My question this week asks. Why didn't the british burned down monticello in seventeen eighty one. This question comes from a couple years ahead of where we are in the story of the revolution in seventeen eighty one. The british were marching through virginia and conducted a raid on thomas. Jefferson's home at monticello. Jefferson had just completed his second term as governor of the state jefferson received advance warning of the raid. Just hours before it took place he was able to get his family away and wrote off himself just minutes. Before the british arrived no reason was ever given for the failure to burn jefferson's estate. The british commonly did burn homes of traders british general. Johnny burgoyne famously. Burned american general philip schuyler home in new york shortly before burgoyne had to surrender and became schuyler guessed. It would not have been surprising to anyone. If the raiders had looted and torched jefferson's plantation the man who raided. Jefferson's home at monticello was bannister tarleton. Who had burned many other homes during the war. The man with the nickname bloodied ban was particularly hated by the americans and had a reputation for brutality. It'd been a part of the troop that had captured. General charles lee years earlier in the war tarleton had no compunctions about burning the homes of other rebels on an earlier campaign tarleton. Burn the home of colonel. Thomas sumter after failing on a mission to capture him. One distinction could be the between military targets and civilian officers. Jefferson of course was an elected official. Not an officer in the army. However i don't think tarleton would have found that distinction particularly persuasive. One reason may have been charlton's mission was to kill or kidnap jefferson himself. Not destroy property burning. A home might have seen like an act motivated by temper tantrum for missing. His prey. tarleton was not only after governor jefferson though but also members of the state legislature who were also thought to be in the area. He did not want to stop and take the time to burn the home which also would have served as an alert to others in the area of the british presence is focused on. The mission was on capturing rebel leaders. Not destroying property..

"Has been a longtime supporter of this podcast. So i was happy to be part of his successful opening. I do have one correction from last week. I talked about the john freeze rebellion. I've been calling him john freeze for years. But it got into my head. That i might be pronouncing the name wrong so right before the show. I went on the internet and looked up some pronunciations of his name. I found a bunch of suggestions all of which pronounce it. John fries so i use that pronunciation during the show and sometimes we're ordered back to freeze so it was kind of going back and forth in the show between fries and freeze after the show. Several locals pulled me aside to assure me that freeze not is the correct pronunciation. So so much for internet pronunciation guides. It's been a rather hectic time for me lately. I've had a few interviews for upcoming special episodes that involve some big name authors. I'm still trying to find the time to edit and release those interviews so stay tuned. We've got some fun special episodes coming up soon this week. Though we covered the battle of stone ferry which is primarily remembered because it resulted in the death of andrew jackson's older brother. The battle itself was a reminder to the british that any expedition outside of their secured cities would be challenged and would lead to casualties. This was the constant pounding than everyone hoped would eventually pushed the british to give up in frustration. I've already recommended several good books about the georgia and south carolina campaigns which covers stone ferry. So you can go back and look at my pass recommendations if you want to read more on today's topic but my book recommendation. This week. I want to recommend a new release. That may interest you.

Several days after the battle hugh's younger brother thirteen year. Old andrew jackson served as a messenger during the battle and survived is brother's death. However was one of several events that gave the future president a lifelong hatred of the british on june twenty third three days after the battle the british pulled out of stone ferry and moved down the coast. The british moved to beaufort on port. Royal island about forty miles closer to savannah their a three hundred man force again under the command of colonel.

General lincoln moved his continentals to sheldon south carolina about fifteen miles north of the british position at beaufort several weeks after the battle in july. Royal governor james right returned to savannah along with lieutenant governor john graham and chief justice anthony stokes the purpose of their return was to restore normal crown rule to the colony of georgia. Right had come to georgia as a teenager in seventeen thirty two years before it formerly received colonial status when his father was appointed chief justice of the new colony right had served as governor since seventeen sixty and had owned more than twenty five thousand acres and five hundred slaves before the revolution forced him out of the colony in seventeen. Seventy six for the next two and a half years right had lobbied the ministry to retake georgia assuring them that most georgians would certainly rally to the cause and support ground rule on his return to georgia right. Attempted to recruit a political base that would support the king but quickly understood what british military recruiters had already learned. That most surgeons were unwilling to commit to the royal government. Right quickly changed his tune in letters to london calling for more reinforcements of regulars to hold control at the state. He refused to call for elections fearing that he would get legislature full of representatives who supported independence instead the civilian government. Just hunkered down with the army and savannah controlling only a few miles around the city. The american government still operated out of augusta and controlled the remainder of the state so even though the british military was winning battles it simply did not have the overwhelming force that it would take to get the populace to rally to their support.

"Field then pushed their way through the abadi. Before assaulting the three british readouts the british also had six field guns to deter the attack. Lincoln plan for the militia wing to strike first. He hoped the british defenders would move to reinforce that side then the continentals would hit the weakened flank but the militia got tangled in the underbrush and the continentals engaged with the british pickets. I colonel maitland. Heard the attack and assumed it was another american. Probe against his defenses. He sent out to companies of regulars to dispatch the attackers. Those companies realized they were facing more than a probe about half of them were killed or wounded as the remainder fled back to their defensive positions. Lincoln had ordered his troops to storm the enemy position. And use the bayonet but about sixty yards out the american advance faltered. The americans paused a fire and would not advance since the americans were in an open field and the british were behind earthworks. The american position was simply untenable. Lincoln personally rode into the front line and encourage the men forward but his words could not persuade them to charge into the british readouts. Lincoln then brought up some artillery to blast at the readouts but the british counter fire from the artillery took their attention to artillery batteries fired at each other from only about sixty yards for about half an hour leading to terrible casualties. On both sides. At one point the british artillery was nearly out of ammunition. Captain james moncrieff letter charge against american cannons ceased its ammunition and brought it back to the british lines to resupply his artillery at the same time the militia on the american right manage to untangle themselves and assault. The enemy lines maitland had deployed his head. On the far left flank and that regiment took the bulk of this american assault the south carolina militia charged the hessian redoubt even though most of the attackers did not have bayonets. They still managed to force the hashes to abandon the redoubt and run away british. Colonel maitland seeing. This sent his reserves to retake the hessian redoubt and push back the americans general lincoln was still focused on pushing forward the american left and did not realize the american right had overrun a redoubt. If he had he might have pushed the right to renew its attack and overrun the forces. That were now weakened. Instead lincoln saw his forces being decimated and ordered a withdrawal as the americans began to pull back. The british moved out of their defenses to pursue the retreating americans saying this lincoln sent in his reserve force of virginia militia.

"By the end of the summer with the support of rutledge poultry. And were a french reinforcements. Lincoln ended up choosing to remain in command in late. May lincoln moved his army to within a half mile of the british camp on johns island. Only the stone river separated the island from the mainland. The british had actually posted the bulk of their troops on the mainland side of the river. The island side was too swampy. And the mainland side made it easier to conduct foraging raids the british position however meant that not only was the river not an effective offensive barrier. It would also make any british in the face of an enemy attack. Nearly impossible provos had dug entrenchments so that the british forces were prepared to repel any assault. But he really had no plan for retreat. If the assault succeeded on may twenty fourth. The american advance guard clashed with a small group of british defenders. Still on james island. Americans manage to drive the british to the west onto john's island from there. The americans crossed over to james island where they could reach the british from the rear. By may thirtieth. The americans were in position general. Pulaski began skirmishing with the british to test their defenses. The british force had a total of about twenty two hundred men with the bulk of them in the defenses at stone ferry. Although lincoln had more soldiers overall he did not have that many in position and available to assault the british defences lincoln concluded that the british were too well entrenched he did not trust is relatively untested army of mostly militia to charge into those entrenchments and eject the british defenders the british and set up three lines of redoubts protected by artillery and erected abbasi's to discourage any attack in the end. Lincoln ordered polaski to pull back instead. This two armies simply stared at each other for about two weeks. General provos had never intended to remain in south carolina.

More mouths to feed. That did not provide much to the effort. Lieutenant colonel mark prevost. Who was second in command to his older brother general. Augustine grievous reported that the army treated escaped slaves. Roughly in an attempt to discourage them from following the army most of the slaves remained anyway knowing that their fate would be far worse if they were recaptured by their former masters for almost all the slaves. There was no good outcome. Many hundreds huddled together in camps on islands near the british force. Hundreds of them died as diseases spread through the camps. The british did end up transporting many of the escapee's back to georgia. But they had no intention of setting them free. The slaves were mostly sold to loyalist masters at georgia. Others were shipped to the west indies. Where they were sold to island plantations if the british had hoped to encourage south carolina loyalists to turn out to the british. 'cause their actions did not encourage it the few native warriors who did join the british were blamed for their cruel and barbaric behavior against plantations.

"Thank you for joining the american revolution this week. Episode two twenty three stone. Oh ferry we'll ask left the southern theater in episode two twenty a few weeks ago. When the british army reached the gates of charleston south carolina and had nearly bluffed the americans into surrendering the british commander in savannah. General augustine prevost other than maybe getting. Some forage had primarily sent a division of troops into south carolina as a faint to get continental general. Benjamin lincoln to pull his troops back out of georgia and defend the state of south carolina. But when lincoln kept the bulk of his forces in georgia and the south carolina militia really failed to turn out and put up a determined defence. The british had gotten all the way to charleston once there though they were outnumbered and lack the necessary artillery to reduce the city walls. As a result they had no choice but to withdraw. Before general lincoln could arrive. General provost had to abandon. The short lived siege of charleston. In may seventeen seventy nine but did not want to return to savannah instead the british. Move to a defensive position onto coastal islands at johns island and james island in the atlantic ocean just a few miles from charleston from there the british began moving soldiers along a series of coastal islands. Back toward the main garrison at savannah by avoiding the mainland. The british prevented the main continental army under lincoln from surrounding them and forcing the surrender. The americans did not have sufficient ship transports to make use of their numerical advantage against the islands. The british spent much of the next month transporting captured food. Mostly rice and beef back to savannah to replenish supplies for the garrison after all that had probably been the main purpose of the foraging expedition. That ended up threatening charleston. General provos grow to secretary of state. George germain in london about his foray into south carolina. And how they almost captured charleston but for the lack of troops provosts main concern was that he would never be able to hold territory in south carolina unless he received reinforcements. The ministry had counted on raising several battalions of loyalists in georgia and south carolina. Back country led by a few regiments of british regulars. This loyalist army would hold georgia and provide the numbers needed to recapture south.

Oh wow i have this opinion. Because i'm trying to survive in a non survival situation. I'm trying to be right and be important so that i can get preferred treatment and none of that is actually ballot or necessary. If you can begin to recognize that your mind is not your friend. Your mind doesn't care about you. Nobody else calls you fat and stupid they did. They wouldn't be your friend ruined. You let your mind treat you badly on a regular basis and you relate to your mind like it is a a source of true information And all science points to that the that that the mind cannot be relied upon for anything tour factual whatsoever so starting to starting to relate to the mind in a different way will help to get us connected to this idea that we are this process of of human emerging and were trying to have incredible experience in the process. And we have all this old outdated information that comes in with us. That makes us think that we should try to survive in these non survival situations.

"Just as king county larger as we get climate refugees i think beliefs at least efficient form of public transit to put money into his probably the ferry system which might be the saving grace for the for for some of the islands in that you know for people who really enjoy not living in a dense place. They could remain that way. But i think we're going to put money into public transit. i think. Investing in sounder rail or in high-speed buses or in light rail that can connect ever to tacoma than in a building up. The transit corridors along along five essentially is is for the sake of building denser. Housing in places like federal way is probably a better use of infrastructure money in that might know then. That doesn't help people in the islands in any way shape or form on the peninsula in any way shape or form. But you know just in. I think if we're if we have to. If we have to choose priorities i think ultimately that's just the easiest way to do density. Look at it that way josh. We might make it annoyingly hard to get to where you are. Yeah we'll true are you. You're making the carbon argument. Essentially right that these the vessels. I'm burning diesel. I'm on a part of that. I would.

They didn't have that much time to dedicate to it so ultimately created something called rapid enlightenment which is like a essentially a fast way to get to a state of bliss and piece.

I should like to question her as the other but cousin who answered that she always refused to see strangers and it will be no used her. She would not answer him. Who is she is shannon. Can of yours asked mr mcallister. Oh no said my cousin agnes at no relatives. Since i've known her and i think she has no friends now but ourselves she has been with us a long time and whilst before this house was around for a time many years since i suppose no one will ever know the whole history of her life. I wish often that she had the power to tell it. We are glad to shelter the little care. She will accept the poor. So god only knows where she has strayed and what she is saying. It's an enormous burden so long life and such a weight of memories. But i think it is seldom now that she feels. It's having us go out to remarks you my dear and see if she seems troubled she always has a welcome for the child. Cousin agnes added as i am. Willingly went away. I found lady ferry in the garden. I stole my hand in hers and after a few minutes of silence i was not surprised to hear his say that they had killed the queen of france. Poor marie antoinette. She had known her well in her childhood before she was queen at all a sad fate. The sad fate said lady ferry. We went far on the gardens and by the river wall when we were there again near the house and could hear mr mcallister's voice as cheery as ever. Madame took no notice of it. I had hoped she would go into the parlor again. And i wished and over that i could have waited either secrets which i was sure must have been told after cousin had sent me away. One day. i thought i had made a wonderful discovery. I was fond of reading and found many books which interested me in cousin matthews fine library but i took great pleasure also in hunting through a collection of old volumes which have been cast aside either by him or by some former owner of the house which will piled in a corner of the great garrett. They were mostly yellow with age and had dark brown leather or shabby paper bindings the pictures in some were very amusing. The me. I used often to find long. I appropriated and carry downstairs. And on this day i came upon dusty odd shaped. It'll book for which i once felt an affection. I looked at it a little. It seemed to be journal. There was some stories of the indians next. I saw some reminiscences of the town of boston where among other things the author was told the marvelous story of one mistress honor. Warburton was cursed and doomed to live in this world forever. That was startling. I at once. Thought of madam was reading on further to know the rest of the story. When someone called me and i foolishly did not dare to carry my book with me. I was afraid. I should not find it if i left it in sight i saw an opening near me at the edge of the floor by the eaves and i carefully late my treasure inside but alas i was not to be sure of it safe hiding place in a way i fancied for the book fell between the boarding the thick walls. I owed it as it fell. And i knew by the sound that it must be out of reach. I grieve this loss for a long time. And i felt that it had been most unkindly taken out of my hand. I wished heartily that. I could know the rest of the story. And i tried to summon courage to ask madam when we were backed by ourselves if she had heard of honor warburton but something held me back..

Say if many guests expected know madam i answered no one has told me and just then the thought flitted through my head that she had said the evening before the all her friends are gone perhaps. She expected their ghosts. That would not be stranger than all the rest. The open space where lady ferry left room for her coffin began to be a horror to me. And i wished deborah would come back or the my hostess would open the shutters and it was a great relief when she rows went into the adjoining room bidding me follow her and they're open the drawer containing some old jewelry. They were also some queer. Chinese carvings yellow with age. Just the things a child would enjoy. I looked at them delightedly. This was coming back to more familiar. Life and i soon felt more at ease and chatter to lady ferry my own possessions and some coveted treasures of my mother's which were to be mine when i grew older. Madame stood beside me patiently and listen with a half smile to my whispered admiration in the clear light. I could see better. And she seemed older so called so old and my father's words came to me again. She had not changed since he was a boy. Living on and on and the horror of an endless alive in this world and i remembered what martha had said to me and the consciousness of this mystery was a great weight upon me of sudden.

The outside was rudely chased as if it had been carried for years and somebody's pocket. It had a spring. The secret of which lee ferry showed me. I was delighted instinctively.

I regard not to leave your lingering like me apart from all your kindred and your life so long that you forget you ever word child i will kiss you.

Would it be on the morrow but the last one day. I found deborah sedately putting the room in order lady. Ferry apologized for its being in such confusion.

I was kept out of doors as much as possible because it was much better for my health and through the long summer days i straight about wherever i choose a country.

"Trial. The charges were murder treason and conspiring with Negros to produce insurrection. That trial began on October. Twenty six just ten days after the raid. All of the men were found guilty in the penalty for all of the charges was death. John Brown was hanged on December. Second Eighteen fifty nine before his hanging. He handed a garden note. That read quote I John Brown 'em now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood among those present were Robert e Lee stonewall Jackson and John Wilkes booth measured by whether it launched an armed slave resistance that freed thousands of slaves and forcibly wrested control of the south from slave owners as had been the original plan. John Brown's raid on Harper's ferry was a complete failure measured by whether it launched an armed slave resistance that free thousands of slaves and forcibly wrested control of the south from slave owners as had been the original plan. John Brown's raid on Harper's ferry was a complete failure but measured by its ultimate effect on the progression of slavery in the United States. It's a completely different story. The same way that there's murders of five pro slavery settlers and Kansas. That we talked about earlier had sparked a tide of violence there. The rate at harpers ferry inflamed passions tensions and violence around slavery and the relationships between slave and free states in many circles in the North Jon Brown became a martyr especially as he was eloquent and steadfast in his denunciations of slavery while on trial and people double down on their efforts to abolish the institution but in the south people were terrified. The idea of a slave insurrection was already a source of fear in a lot of the south and in some places white slave owners and the rest of the white population were vastly outnumbered by enslaved people so the idea that these people might unite and violently overthrow their owners with petrifying. The South tried to downplay Brown's raid as unimportant in an effort to dismiss it while simultaneously being completely horrified at what it could spell for the future on a more practical level. Many parts of the south renewed their call for militia membership and military drills of those militia. So that when the civil war did begin those militias that had been created under the idea of fighting a potential John Brown inspired rebellion if it was necessary. We're already there and trained and ready to go to war. It was also one of many events that happened in the late. Eighteen fifty s that stoked political passions the issue of slavery. The Democrats split over the issue of slavery in the eighteen sixty election with pro and anti slavery factions each putting forth candidates for presidency and neither securing a necessary two-thirds majority at the Party Convention after a series of efforts to unite the party. The Democratic Party nominated senator a Douglas while the Southern Democrats nominated John C Breckenridge and both Douglas and Breckenridge presented themselves as the official party candidates. Meanwhile an entire other party the Constitutional Union Party nominated former senator. John Bell of Tennessee to be their candidate for president and in the end. It was Abraham Lincoln the Republican nominee. Who won this four way election with only one hundred and eighty electoral votes and just shy of forty percent of the popular vote as a consequence of Lincoln's election? Eleven southern states seceded from the Union which directly led to the civil war. Fifty years after the raid. Frederick Douglass would say that John Brown quote began the war that ended. American slavery made this a Free Republic. There are a lot of historian. Basically think without this lightning point of harpers ferry there would not have been that four way split in the election that ultimately led Lincoln to be elected not with a whole majority of the popular vote and for decades even a century after the raid historical accounts painted Brown as mentally unstable with descriptions being full of words like delusional and Madman but really brown was methodical and well researched in this whole idea. He had studied other uprisings. Including Net Turner's rebellion in the Haitian revolution and he had also studied guerrilla resistance to military forces in both Europe and the United States including in the colonial era today. Some historical depictions of him have shifted a little bit to be more including of language lake fiercely devoted rather than unhinged in insane even when he was alive at first as news of the raid was spreading even in the north where it sort of reinvigorated abolition. As a cause at first there were people who were like that ban is not in his right mind. Mind and sentiment shifted about him as he continually made these like steadfast and very eloquent denunciations of slavery during his trial So the idea that everybody thought that he was like mentally unwell. Even at the time was not totally. Accurate Harry Tubman in particular described him as being the only white person that she ever met who actually thought that slavery was a life or death issue. That really needed to be treated that way. an even like even the more recent past You see divisions and how people talk about John Brown and like whether his ideas were good and whether he was making sense in a methodical way or whether he was sort of flying off in this delusional fervor like the Malcolm X. Talked about if you if you meet a white person to says that they are in favor of black power. Find out what they think about John Brown. I think that's one of the things that sort of led to the politically reactive podcasts. That we talked about early earlier in the top of the show was that they were talking about John. Brown white people and idea of people who were that fervently devoted and that ready to put their own lives on the line no matter what to in slavery so he's a complicated person. Yeah I feel like we feel like we barely scratched the surface.
