Farmington Libraries 2016 Team Retreat
The outcomes from our 2016 Retreat are filled with great ideas and new initiatives along with a mutual understanding of the nature and direction of other teammembers work.
Bruce Chadwick’s, The First American Army: The Untold Story of George Washington and the Men Behind America's First Fight for Freedom presents the visceral pain of ordinary Revolutionary War soldiers mixed with the drudgery and business of ordinary life, love, and orders through their diaries. It is captivating if you are really interested in the human spirit and context of this great American struggle.

A Book Review on, Nathaniel Philbrick’s, George Washington, Benedict Arnold, And the Fate of the American Revolution
Nathaniel Philbrick’s, George Washington, Benedict Arnold, And the Fate of the American Revolution, (973.382) presents an exhaustive account of Benedict Arnold as the Hannibal the American Revolution based upon his trek and portages up the Kennebec river and on to Quebec. This objective and revealing biography is very important in providing a bibliographic essay for the reader’s further excursions into this fascinating time in American history. This book is not for the faint of heart however, once involved, it is hard to put down. I highly recommend reading this book.
