Colonel Jonathan: An American Story is an unusual work of historical fiction—more history than fiction. A deeply-researched story of a remarkable man and his remarkable family, who lived in remarkable times, and who left an impact that intertwines with the history of America and extends from the eastern ocean to the western one. It is a story worth rescuing from beneath grandma’s back porch, and gluing back together, and being read by everyone who has an even passing interest in America’s beginnings.
