RICHARD BUTLER, PATRIOT. 2003 by Stephen M. Pozar. After nearly three years of research, Mr. Pozar has solved much of the mystery surrounding the man for whom the city and county of Butler, Pennsylvania, are named. He reveals a complex and fascinating man with more ties to the Butler area than could have been imagined. Having immigrated to America with his Anglo-Irish family in 1748, Richard Butler dedicated his life to the service of his new country. He volunteered to fight in Pontiac's War, and finished the Revolutionary War as a brevet brigadier general. He was a friend of George Washington and Lafayette; an Indian trader, a judge and a state senator. He died with the rank of major-general at the age of 48 in battle against the Indians in the Ohio Territory. This informative book includes correspondence from Richard Butler, his war records and the genealogy of the Butler family. 78 pages, 5 x 8 Softbound.
