Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
1790 and the French Revolution is here. Business sales have collapsed through the spring and summer and the aristocrats are in fear of having their heads cut off. Some people are purchasing land in the northwest territories to move there and escape the revolution. The land was being sold to help pay the debts of the American Revolution. The group buying the American land became known as the French 500. This story will trace the lives of Francis Valodin, a reported stowaway, and Pierre Antoine Laforge, an aristocrat, back to France then on to where they and their families lived in America. If you have an interest in history and genealogy you should love this book.
