John Bakeless, DANIEL BOONE (New York: W. Morrow & Co., 1939)

Court Martial
"It was no wonder that when it was all over the finger of an evil suspicion pointed at the man who had lived four months with the enemy; who was an adopted member of their tribe; wo was the 'son' of the chief who had commanded the attack and a friend of the 'hair-buying general' himself. There was some ground, too, for suspecting Toryism. . . . Rebecca's family were mostly Tories, some merely as sympathizers, some as active soldiers of the King against his colonists. Her relative, Samuel Bryan, had just returned from Kentucky when he was killed fighting for the King. It was even said that Daniel Boone had never wished to fight on the rebel side, that he had gone to Kentucky in 1775 to avoid the revolutionary struggle then impending." (BAKELESS:232) TORYSYMP
