Description
 
The author expands on his earlier work "Casimir Pulaski: Cavalry Commander of the American Revolution." In this sequel he focuses more on the valor and fighting ability of the officers. He continues their distinguished service in the Revolutionary War into the post bellum period. Therefore, the author documents, perhaps for the first time, an account of the lives of Pulaski's officers who faced danger and fought courageously in the Revolutionary War.

The officers of the Pulaski Legion were mostly French, with a few Americans and Poles, one Hungarian, one Saxon, one Italian, one Canadian, one French Irishman, and one Swede. The soldiers of the Legion were preponderantly Americans, as the muster rolls of the Legion in this book show.

Perhaps the most significant action of the Pulaski Legion was its death-defying challenge to the impetuous march of the British Army to sieze Charleston, South Carolina, in 1779. Although Pulaski's battle plan miscarried and the Legion got mauled, Pulaski gained the strategic objective of denying Charleston to the enemy. Impressed by Pulaski's performance, the British called the Legion "the best Cavalry the rebels ever had."

General Casimir Pulaski and the Pulaski Legion earned a proud chapter of service and sacrifice in the history of the American Revolution.
