Overview and Impressions:

This book took a while to read.  The author packed lots of information into few pages. 

The Road to Guilford Courthouse covers the American Revolution in the Carolinas starting in Charleston, South Carolina and ending with General Greene's defeat at Guilford Courthouse.  That paved the while for General Cornwallis's surrender at Yorktown.  Cornwallis took the cream of his army through the Caolinas chasing after General Morgan's irregulars and General Greene's Continentals.  Corwallis destroyed his army in the process.  Thus, setting the stage for the British loss of her thirteen colonies.
