Lt. Colonel John Laurens: 1754-1782, died age 27

Paperback (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform Dec. 13, 2015) , 1 edition
I have always found it telling that never in my life have I heard of John Laurens. Only my own research brought his story to light. For some unknown reason, John Laurens does not get mentioned alongside John Hancock, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and Alexander Hamilton in American colonial history books. I discovered John Laurens’ story while studying his father Henry Laurens’ time as president of the Continental Congress. Is it fair that such a good man is not listed in the histories of the Americas? Is it merely because Laurens died an untimely, premature death at the age of 27?
