This book provides hard evidence of the massive support received by the American’s who sought independence fro England. It contains heretofore unknown evidence of millions of dollars in cash and military supplies supplied by Spain. It contains proof that France and Spain entered into an agreement long before Saratogo to support the colonists with money and arms – with substantiation that this agreement by Spain and France was entered into in the Spring of 1776! The book describes the brilliant tactics employed by General Bernardo de Galvez in removing the British from both the lower MIssissippi River Valley and the Gulf Coast, and how he overcame the hurricane that devastated his armada headed from Pensacola. It proves that Spain was a valuabe ally even though no formal alliance was ever signed by it. The book documents the names of many of the Spanish soldiers and business men who rendered financial support to the war effort. Descendants of all of these men are qualified for membership in the DAR and SAR.
