What with the website coming back from the dead, and the 238th anniversary of the American Declaration of Independence, there are a few things to celebrate this week. 

We hope your Fourth of July is filled with laughter, good food and general merriment.

Over the years Osprey has given the War of Independence some pretty solid treatment, But in two months time, we'll be looking at a slightly different facet - the prelude to the war.

Campaign 273, Point Pleasant 1774 is available to pre-order now. It explores the October campaign led by Lord Dunmore and Colonel Lewis against the Shawnee and Mingo tribes in the Scioto valley. 

When advance copies of this book arrive at Osprey towers, we would love to be able to give away a free copy. So we're posing a quick trivia question. Those who answer correctly , on the blog or on our Twitter & Facebook feeds, will be entered into a prize draw.

So, the question is as follows: Which famous military leader's father was killed at the Battle of Point Pleasant?

Hi all,

We\'ll be announcing the winner on Friday. To make up for the typo (very sorry for those of you chasing elusive grandfathers on Google!) we will be running another little competition tomorrow - keep your eyes peeled!

I saw the question last night, and I\'m like \"Well Tecumseh\'s father was killed at Point Pleasant but not his grandfather.\" Thought it might be William Henry Harrison, Grant\'s grandfather, also picked up on the Thomas Buford thing, though he\'s not John Buford\'s (of Gettysburg fame) grandfather, may be a great uncle though. But it\'s really Tecumseh, oh well, should\'ve checked back with the forum earlier.

It was Tecumseh\'s father. Do you know how long I googled Point Pleasant and Civil War figures\' grandfathers?
