Projects of the Simms Initiatives
Or, the Raid of the Dog-days
William Gilmore Simms
The Forayers is one of Simms's revolutionary romances, and is concerned with the British army's retreat from its outpost at Ninety-Six. Simms explores the events leading up the Battle of Eutaw Springs in 1781; in thus returning to the Revolutionary War romance series, Simms bridged the considerable gap in narrative time between the events of The Scout and those of Woodcraft, rounding out his epic exploration of the American republic's genesis-in-fire.
