Citizens More Than Soldiers: The Kentucky Militia and Society in the Early Republic

By Harry S. Laver | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

The single name of an author on any published work is gravely misleading. Behind that individual stand scores of people who provide assistance and support, all of whom cannot be named but deserve thanks nonetheless. For their contributions to this work, I would like to thank the librarians and staff of the David Library of the American Revolution, Washington Crossing, Pennsylvania; the Department of Special Collections and the Margaret I. King Library, University of Kentucky, Lexington, Kentucky; the Filson Club Historical Society, Frankfort, Kentucky; the Kentucky Historical Society, Frankfort, Kentucky; and the Kentucky Military Records and Research Branch Library, Frankfort, Kentucky. In addition, the Departments of History at both the University of Kentucky and the United States Military Academy at West Point provided financial assistance. I would also like to express my gratitude to all those who tirelessly provided scholarly direction and advice, especially Lance Banning, Don Higginbotham, George Herring and his wife Dottie, Cynthia Kierner, Jeffrey Matthews, Bo Morgan, and Joel Quinn. My greatest debt remains to those friends and family who believed, especially Mom, Dad, and Tara.
