Paul Lockhart

Historian and author


Welcome to my home on the web! I’m Paul Lockhart, author of The Drillmaster of Valley Forge: The Baron de Steuben and the Making of the American Army and, more recently, The Whites of Their Eyes: Bunker Hill, the First American Army, and the Emergence of George Washington. My aim is to write about the history of war for those who enjoy military history and for those who don’t…but who do like a good read. Although I’m a professionally-trained academic historian, and still a professor who actively teaches, what I love to do most is to write history for non-specialists and non-academics.

Here you will find my blog, a place to buy my books, and ways of getting in touch with me. Please feel free to comment on my blog posts or to contact me via the email addresses listed on the “Contact” page. I love to hear from my fans.

    I always thought Baron Steuben was one of the most underrated figures of American History. I read a book, the name escapes me, that characterized him watching a later Rebel Victory while, “happily swearing in several languages.” Keep up the good work, from Erik at theoryofirony.

    Hello Dr. Paul Lockhart, I have been unsuccessful in reaching you by email or phone this last month to request some questions for our DAR Book Club study discussion of your Drillmaster book next month. You were gracious in sending us information last year for your Bunker Hill book and we would really appreciate hearing from you again.
