Thomas McClung at the Battle of Point Pleasant
This book is a factual account of Thomas McClung's heroism during the 'First Battle' of the Revolutionary War. His death on October 10, 1774 was recognized by the US Congress and entered into the Congressional Record in 1992, naming him an 'Unheralded Patriot'. His remains, found on the battlefield at that time, were positively identified. The Sons of the American Revolution list Thomas McClung as a Patriot who died in 1774. His death certificate states that he died on October10, 1774 and gives his burial place as the Point Pleasant Battlefield in Mason County, WV. Many of the soldiers who fought with Thomas McClung during the Battle of Point Pleasant wrote accounts of his death on the battlefield, where the colonial militia of America fought and defeated the Native American forces led by the Shawnee Chief Cornstalk. An Appendix at the back of the book contains numerous authenticated documents that provide conclusive evidence of the life and death of Thomas McClung (1728-1774).
