Additional information

American Revolutionary Wars 1775 & 1861 Free 30 Page Sample, with 70 full colour images. As both American Revolutionary Wars I have divided them into 3 major parts. PART I Early History & Establishment of USA from 1775, PART II Social & Political Changes 1861-65, and PART III Technical Inventions Social & Military 1861-1918.

All three parts 1-3 will have most of their content taken from Original source material, like Letters (some letters transcribed), Drawings, Prints and Photographs. We are lucky we have our own antiquarian books together with the worldwide web, to extend our research.

We use copyright free material and acknowledge any with their own web-site-hyperlink, and others already in the public domain, or with author’s permission.

We will be publishing a series of Black and White images in blocks of 50 per set.

The public are freely invited to choose one and digitally colour it.

You are invited to return your enhanced image where it will be judged in our Mumfordbooks Forum. All entries must be to a high standard to be published,

each colourist will have their name acknowledged. We recommend you download our free sample for Civil War Letters/Civil War 1860-65 to see first-hand the projected quality of our eBooks.
