Jim Piecuch worked thirteen years as a professional firefighter in Manchester, NH, before returning to college. After earning a BA in history from the University of New Hampshire-Manchester and an MA from the University of New Hampshire in Durham, he completed his Ph.D. in American history at the College of William & Mary in Virginia.

Dr. Piecuch specializes in the history of the American Revolution, and has published extensively on that topic. His books include The Battle of Camden: A Documentary History (2006), Three Peoples, One King: Loyalists, Indians and Slaves in the Revolutionary South (2008), “Cool Deliberate Courage”: John Eager Howard in the American Revolution (2009), and “The Blood Be Upon Your Head”: Tarleton and the Myth of Buford’s Massacre (2010). He has also written several articles and essays on colonial and Revolutionary history.

In addition, Dr. Piecuch recently completed a multiyear project that produced signs and a brochure to interpret the Revolutionary War battlefields of Camden and Hobkirk's Hill in South Carolina. He is currently working on several other research projects on other aspects of the American Revolution when he is not roving the South Carolina woods with his Siberian huskies, Shyleea and Max.
