Strong Ground

Mount Independence and the American Revolution

The Mount Independence Coalition is proud to announce the publication of Strong Ground: Mount Independence and the American Revolution.

This 112-page, full-color, richly illustrated history of Mount Independence is now available. Loaded with contemporary maps and paintings, modern photographs and maps, and original illustrations by noted artist Gary Zaboly, the book breathes history. Informative sidebars complement the dramatic narrative story of Mount Independence and its unique place among American Revolutionary War sites.

To celebrate the publication, the Coalition is holding a gala launch party at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 29. The public is welcome. We’ll be posting more information about the launch party as the date nears.

Strong Ground tells the story of Mount Independence’s crucial role in the Revolutionary War.

Copies of the book are currently available at the Visitor Center gift shop. Soon they will be available at other book shops in the area. We’ll be updating this page with more information about how to purchase copies. Check this page for the list of retailers carrying the book
