Holly A. Mayer’s new book, Congress’s Own: A Canadian Regiment, the Continental Army, and American Union, reveals what the personal passions, hardships, and accommodations of the 2nd Canadian Regiment, nicknamed “Congress’s Own,” can tell us about the greater military and civil dynamics of the American Revolution. The author interweaves various insights to explore one of the first “national” regiments created by the Continental Congress in 1776, which drew members from Canada, 11 American states, and foreign forces.
