"Guns Over The Carolinas" The Story of Nathanael Greene written by Ralph Edgar Bailey. Published by William Morrow and Company, second printing 1968.
"To the tune of "The World Turned Upside Down," Cornwallis and his British and Hessian army on October 19,1781, marched out of Yorktown, Virginia, Flags furled, while double ranks of jubilant French and American troops looked on. This story concerns the man who, second only to George Washington himself, was responsible for Cornwallis's surrender.
The son of a Rhode Island anchor smith, Nathanael Greene was one of the few military scholars in this country when the American Revolution started. Brought up a Quaker, he hated war, but felt that the cause of the Colonies was 'the cause of God and man." In these pages we find the account of Greene's service to that cause, especially during the long years when in command of the Southern theater he harassed the enemy in the Carolinas. At last we see him ride in triumph into Charleston as the British troops depart. He had won the South for the Colonies. "
