It was worse than Custer's Last Stand! After the Battle on the Wabash, the United States had only three hundred soldiers to man its westernmost forts from Cincinnati to Louisville to Vincennes. With the end of the Revolutionary War the far west beckons to many. Among the homesteaders, farmers, adventurers and former soldiers is Landis James, a veteran estranged from his Philadelphia merchant father, who settles in the Kentucky borderlands. But these newcomers are encroaching on on lands ceded to the Native Americans by treaty; to them it is an outright invasion. Encouraged and armed by the British, the many tribes must unite to defend their homeland. In 1790, President Washington sends an army into the wilderness to fight the Indians. They are defeated by the Miami, Shawnee and other tribes. In 1791 he sends a new army. Landis James, now a captain, heads back into the northern forests with many of his fellow Kentuckians to even the score. An Army Lost is a fictional account of the men, women and children who trekked north with the army on this little known campaign and is the first in a series following the James family during the early days of the American Republic.
