I was raised in Greenwich, a colonial New Jersey village known for hosting its own revolutionary tea party in the market square. Our neighbors were farmers, trappers, and watermen, and these Delaware Bay traditions sparked my interest in the past and its places.
My historical interests are broad, anchored more in place than sub-discipline. My principal interest is the “mind” of the colonial American South. My first book is about Daniel Morgan, the action hero of the American Revolution. Morgan had plenty of ideas, but no one would ever accuse him of being an intellectual.
