Col. William Marsh Vermont Loyalist and Loyalist by Wilson Brown Jennifer Brown
Product Description
This engaging and carefully researched book tells, for the first time, the story of William Marsh (1738-1816), an intriguing but little-known Revolutionary figure whose life crossed borders both national and political. It contributes importantly to the literature on American loyalists about whom few book-length biographies have been written. It traces through myriad sources the life of a founder of Vermont long overshadowed by the ample attention paid to his famed associates, Ethan and Ira Allen. The book also places Marsh in his family context, tracing the Marshes from Connecticut in the late 1600s to Upper Canada where many descendants found new homes after the American Revolution. In doing so, it explores the roots of his values, actions, and choices in the dramatic events through which he lived. Before the war, Marsh and several thousand other New Hampshire Grants settlers faced grave challenges to their land titles from New York which laid claim to the territory that was to become Vermont. A colonel in the Manchester (VT) militia, Marsh supported the Green Mountain Boys’ paramilitary actions against the Yorkers’ moves to dispossess the settlers. As the Revolution began, he played a key role in uniting the Vermont towns as they organized to request the American Continental Congress to recognize them as a state. When the congress refused, and when the British proposed to offer them recognition and support, Marsh turned to the British as offering the best prospects for Vermont as it struggled to survive on its own. Present at the British defeat at Saratoga in October 1777, Marsh was sent into exile in Canada. He next surfaced at Fort St. John, north of Lake Champlain, doing intelligence and refugee work for the British secret service under General Frederick Haldimand. Although the British failed to make Vermont into a British colony, Marsh and other Vermont loyalists and partisans secured Vermont’s neutrality in the later years of the Revolution, protecting it from the severe British raids unleashed against New York. After the war, Marsh documented to the Loyalist Claims Commission the confiscation of most of his Vermont lands and secured grants for himself and offspring in Upper Canada. In the meantime, his father’s Vermont holdings preserved a base for the family in their homeland. Returning finally to Vermont, Marsh spent his last twenty years out of the public sphere, rebuilding his life and livelihood among both old friends and enemies, while retaining on his own an attachment to Freemasonry reflected in his remarkable gravestone in Dorset, Vermont. Most of his children found success in Canada, even as they endured fresh economic challenges and troubled times through the War of 1812. A genealogical appendix adds substantially to the family’s history, filling gaps and resolving numerous old questions that have beset the many descendants who have sought to trace their Marsh roots. Review by Tyler Resch, Research Librarian, Bennington Museum, Bennington, VT: This new biography opens the reader's eyes to the political and economic hardships of Vermont’s settlers during the era of the American Revolution, a time when many were justifiably troubled about where their loyalties should reside. Its subject has lingered in obscurity until now, but Col. William Marsh: Vermont Patriot and Loyalist by Jennifer S.H. Brown and Wilson B. Brown, demonstrates that Marsh worked and associated with many well-known figures in early New England and nearby Canada. In revealing Marsh’s little-known role in the creation of the feisty and independent state of Vermont, and his later work with the British on its behalf, the book makes a major contribution to its history, telling "the Vermont story" in fresh and readable ways and making sophisticated use of a wide variety of sources.
Product Description

 In 1891 William Marsh Rice made a generous bequest in order to found the distinguished Houston institution that bears his name. Ironically, this very bequest helped to bring about his murder, an act of treachery perpetrated by a conniving attorney and Rice’s naïve, malleable manservant. This captivating tale—full of intrigue, legal twists and turns, and sensational revelations—an important part of the full biography of Rice himself, received its first careful historical investigation by Andrew Forest Muir, a longtime professor of history at Rice University who, beginning in 1957, performed the fundamental research that forms the basis for this biography. At the time of Muir’s death in 1969, the work remained incomplete. Subsequently, at the request of the Rice Historical Society, Sylvia Stallings Morris shaped the fruits of Muir’s labor into the first edition of this book, which was published in 1972.

The new edition of William Marsh Rice and His Institute, edited by Randal L. Hall, returns this fine biography to print in connection with the celebration of the centennial of the opening of Rice University. Incorporating new and important sources unearthed since the publication of the original book, this revised edition retains all the flavor and meticulous care of the earlier work, especially the “finely crafted storytelling of Sylvia Stallings Morris Lowe and Andrew Forest Muir,” as characterized by Hall.

Rice University students, faculty, staff, and alumni; scholars and students of Houston, Texas, and regional history; and those interested in the history of American higher education will all welcome William Marsh Rice and His Institute: The Centennial Edition.

Union leader William Marsh dies at 93 - (registration)

SYDNEY — A Cape Breton union leader who put up a fearless fight the keep the area’s coal mines open has died. (Bull) Marsh of New Waterford died Sunday at 93. For 22 years starting in 1958, Marsh served as president of the former District 26 of the United Mine Workers of America. He had dropped out of school in Grade 11 to follow in the footsteps of his father, who was sent off to the mines at age 11, according to an article in Cape Breton’s Magazine. At about age 16, Marsh was about to get a job as a truck driver when his father came home one day with a hard helmet and pit boots. And then turned me loose,” Marsh told the publication in 1997. Marsh’s first coal mining experiences came before the mechanical age, meaning the black mineral was hand loaded and cut out using the longwall method. Marsh continued toiling in the mines until he joined the navy in 1941. After his service ended four years later, he headed back underground. He was first elected mining union president in 1958 after defeating Tom McLachlan, who had previously negotiated history-making wage concessions. Popular for his fighting spirit, Marsh served as union leader for a remarkable 22 years — pushing for miners’ rights amid talks of nationalization and closures. “He was a pretty imposing figure, but he was very jovial as well,” said Steve Drake, a provincial Crown attorney and former coal miner. Drake started working in the coal mines in 1977, just three years before Marsh ended his term in office. They later met up when Marsh was retired and Drake himself had stepped into the role of union president in the 1990s prior to the industry’s closure. “The conversation I had with him in the 1990s when the coal industry was closing was basically the same thing that I heard from him in the 1970s — always, always fight the good fight for the miners. Drake, whose family has worked in the coal industry for about 125 years, said miners often spoke through the election ballot. “They kept electing Bull Marsh, and that was a statement on its own — the miners respected the man. Marsh was honoured in 1995 by the University College of Cape Breton, now Cape Breton University, which bestowed upon him an honorary doctorate of laws degree. Victor Tomiczek, a longtime union leader who served as regional director with the Canadian Auto Workers, said he knew Marsh all his life. “He worked hard on behalf of the United Mine Workers when he was president of that local.
