In 1775, Captain Henry Mowat infamously ordered the burning of Falmouth-now Portland. That act cast him as the arch villain in the state's Revolutionary history, but Mowat's impact on Maine went far beyond a single border. In this book, historian Harry Gratwick examines the life of Mowat and whether he truly was the scoundrel of Revolutionary Maine. Black & white photographs and illustrations throughout. Paperback. 155 pgs.
