by Harold R. Thompson

The End of the Tether

The cost of freedom…

A Novel of the Battle of Yorktown

It is the spring of 1781. Encamped outside New York, General George Washington gambles on a daring plan to shift his army south to strike at the British forces of Lord Charles Cornwallis, entrenched at the tiny Virginian tobacco port of York Town.

Charles Cornwallis is frustrated by the conflicting orders of his superiors. Daniel Brattle, an officer of Lafayette’s Division, has begun to doubt that ultimate victory will come. Catherine Seawell, a Loyalist refugee from New England, searches for a home in a country she no longer recognizes. Sergeant Tom Martin, a British light infantryman, is resolved to simply do his duty without compromise.

The battle for independence hangs in the balance, and no one will leave York Town unchallenged or unchanged.

From the Battle of Green Spring to the storming of Redoubt Number Ten to the dramatic conclusion of the siege of Yorktown, The End of the Tether brings to life a pivotal moment in American history.

Twenty-two-year-old George Washington was pleased by his promotion to the rank of lieutenant-colonel and quite content to be the second-in-command of Governor Robert Dinwiddie’s expedition to remove the French from the Ohio Valley.

Then Joshua Fry, the mission’s elderly commanding officer, is killed in a fall from his horse. Washington, whose experience in battle is all but nonexistent, is suddenly in command of the Virginia Regiment at a remote field in the Allegheny Mountains called Great Meadows—and the enemy is coming.
