Us Part III
The Tennessee Hatmakers
About the Book:
Hatmaker story began on the banks of the Nagold and on the ridges of the Black
Forest of southwest Germany. In America, they first sighted the promontories of
coastal Pennsylvania and soon after followed the rutted trace of the Great Wagon
Road. They marched in the armies of Washington, Lafayette and Greene, and faced
the dangers along the Great Alamance as well as the perils of the East Tennessee
were pioneers in every sense of the word.
They were there to see the unfolding of the great American story — and
to be a part of it all!
Whenever America has needed them, Hatmaker patriots have responded. They
served in the French and Indian War, the Revolution, the War of 1812, the Indian
Wars, the bloody and divisive Civil War, the War with Spain, and the great wars
of the 20th Century and the modern conflicts of the 21st.
Hatmakers have always been patriots. From the Dürlach Regiment to Co. A
of the 1st East Tennessee Mounted to the ranks of the modern U.S.
Armed Forces, Hatmakers have always served.
Follow the Hatmakers through official federal, state and county
for yourself how they helped settle the backcountry of the great American
frontier and how they sacrificed time and time again to help a fledgling America
emerge from Colonial oppression and economic tyranny.
The authors present a compelling record that leaves the reader with a
better understanding of American history, and clear evidence of the Hatmakers
role in it. Shadows
