Frontier Battles would like to welcome the newest writer to the team. Daniel J. Tortora is a Ph.D. candidate at Duke University specializing in American Colonial History. He will be a valuable asset to our team and we look forward to his upcoming writings.
The Frontier Battles staff
As I continue work to build my sites, I am sending out a call for authors to join Frontier Battles. If you are a historian of the British Empire from 1607-1815, a French historian of the same period, a Colonial historian, American historian, student, or just interested in the period that is covered by this site, then we want you to consider joining the staff and contributing to this site. You do not need to post every day or week, just when you can. There are only two rules: know what you are talking about (back it up with material if possible) and HAVE FUN. If writing about colonial/early American history interests you, then please email me with the following information:
Website address (if you have one that is relevant to this site), which will be linked
Institutional affiliation (if you are a student or faculty member, please tell me where)
What areas interest you?
Please understand that this is unpaid work, but that you will have fun and be able to share your knowledge and insights with others. I look forward to requests to join the staff.
This site is currently a “work zone” and work zone speed limits are enforced (just kidding). Seriously though, I am currently building this site up, which means that changes will be occurring frequently, but not in the posting area (I will be adding pages and other fun features). So keep checking back for improvements.
I would like to welcome our newest members, William F. Sauerwein (my father) and James Mc Intyre, Instructor in History at Moraine Valley Community College. Both bring interest and expertise in the period covered by Frontier Battles. I look forward to their posts in the near future.

If you are interested in the period covered by Frontier Battles and would like to contribute, please email me.
