Synopsis

William Tryon's role in the affairs of British America during the last years of the empire, and his inability to stem the collapse of that empire, makes for a fascinating story. Royal governor of North Carolina from 1765-1771 and then of New York from 1771-1780, Tryon became a general in the British army attempting to quell the American rebellion. This long overdue biography covers his life in service to the Crown through the end of the American Revolution.
