Horton's Historical Articles
by Gerald Horton
Gerald (Jerry) Horton has always been interested in American History, particularly the era from 1750 to 1820. Upon his retirement in 2000, he found more time for reading and research. It was through this research Jerry became intrigued with the Mohawk Valley during the Revolutionary War.
With his new historical focus, Jerry feels compelled to write about this area. He highlights the experiences and stories of all the people of the valley (Patriots, Loyalists, and Iroquois) during that era. He also hopes readers will find the articles interesting and perhaps, at times, a little controversial.
When he’s not reading and researching, Jerry enjoys time with his wife (Linda) at their camp in the Adirondacks. Walks in the woods are very therapeutic; he also enjoys the freedom to “do as he pleases” with his time, including volunteering on a telephone counseling hotline.
