Crossing the River

Crossing the River by Harold Titus

Printed Book

Crossing the River brings to life General Thomas Gage’s failed attempt April 19, 1775, to seize and destroy military stores stockpiled at Concord by Massachusetts’s Provincial Congress. Characters of high and ordinary station confront their worst fears. Illustrating the internal conflicts, hubris, stupidity, viciousness, valor, resiliency, and empathy of many of the day’s participants, Crossing the River is both a study of man experiencing intense conflict and the resultant aspects of high-risk decision-taking, for which the novel’s title is a metaphor.

  1. The research concerning small details of dress, locations, movement of horses, people and supplies at that historic time, brought the story to life.
