Originally published in 1900, 'Alice of Old Vincennes' was Maurice Thompson's most popular work. Set in Vincennes, Indiana, during the American Revolutionary War, it tells the story of an orphan girl named and her brave battle for liberty and love. It became a bestseller and in 1901 was the second biggest selling book in the United States. We are republishing this work with a brand new introductory biography of the author.
Against the background of George Rogers Clark's Wabash campaign during the Revolutionary War, a young woman proves her courage, her patriotism for the new country, and her love for a Virginia lieutenant.
