A Note by William C. Davis, Author of The Rogue Republic. Happily there were a lot of them working on The Rogue Republic.

A Note by William C. That is when a 21st-century man gets to feel a little like Christopher Columbus. Newspapers are one, and the material that I found in the papers from 1800–1820 for this story would be enough itself to fill a book. The originals are hard to get to, of course, and often in poor condition.

When Britain ceded the territory of West Floridaâ? what is now Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Floridaâ?to Spain in 1783, America was still too young to confidently fight in one of Europeâ?s endless territorial contests. So it was left to the settlers, bristling at Spanish misrule, to establish a foothold in the area. Enter the Kemper brothers, whose vigilante justice culminated in a small band of American residents drafting a constitution and establishing a new government. By the time President Madison sent troops to occupy the territory, assert U.S. authority under the Louisiana Purchase, and restore order, West Floridaâ?s settlers had already announced their independence, becoming our countryâ?s shortest-lived rogue â?republic.â? Meticulously researched and populated with the colorful characters that make American history a joy, this is the story of a young country testing its power on the global stage and a lost chapter in how the frontier spirit came to define American character. The first treatment of this little-known historical moment, The Rogue Republic shows how hardscrabble frontiersmen and gentleman farmers planted the seeds of civil war, marked the dawn of Manifest Destiny, and laid the groundwork for the American empire.

Curiosity about the times in which my ancestors lived in East Baton Rouge Parish from 1796-1829 initially was why I choose this book. William C. DAVIS's book is full of facts that explain a particular place in history where American, Spanish, French and British interests all converged and out of it sprang a revolution that although small in nature had lasting impact on our nation and in which ultimate control of the Mississippi River came to the U.S. Jefferson's & Madison's encouragement had tremendous influence and the West Florida Republic became a symbol to all Americans especially Southerners & soon to be Texans (like my ancestors) of hope, change and freedom.

I just finished Rouge Republic and enjoyed it greatly. William Davis is one of my favorite modern historians. He covers his subject thoroughly and sticks to the facts and history, while making it extremely interesting and enjoyable. Many modern historians read more like politically correct propagandists rather than historians. I appreciate historians like William Davis who put history into the context of time period he writes about. That was particularly appreciated in the creation of the West Florida Republic. Generations of my ancestors lived in West Florida under both the British and the Spanish, but I never really understood the conflict or put the events in proper historical context until I read Rouge Republic. I didn't realize what an impact the Napoleonic Wars had on the events in West Florida, which makes the whole revolution more understandable and justifiable. It has certainly inspired me to learn more about this period in history and the role my own ancestors may have played in it.

The Rogue Republic caught my attention quite by accident, briefly mentioned at the end of an on-line Wall Street Journal. As a native Baton Rougeon with deep roots in 3 of the Louisiana Florida Parishes, I had never heard of this piece of history - one that my ancestors were certainly touched by. The book is a must read for anyone in South Louisiana, and fills in fascinating details of the era - down to the roughness of how our people lived, protected themselves and coped with corrupt government. It is a well written and hard book to put down - reads like a spy thriller, though it's a true story. Highly recommended!

Excellent narrative of the West Florida Rebellion. Some of my relatives were involved in it, so I had a special interest. I learned a lot more about this era than I'd known. It was a little hard to read because it is completely factual.

Exhaustive and exhausting account of the exploits of my distant relative, Reuben Kemper on the Florida border in the early 19th century. A must read if you're related.

Interesting so far but then I haven't finished it.
