The first author that came to mind was,
Roberts, Kenneth Lewis
Roberts, Kenneth Lewis, 1885–1957, American author, b. Kennebunk, Maine, grad. Cornell, 1908. Well known as staff correspondent for the Saturday Evening Post and as an author of travel books, Roberts retired in 1928 to write the Chronicles of Arundel, a series of American historical novels; the series eventually included Arundel (1930), The Lively Lady (1931), Rabble in Arms (1933), and Captain Caution (1934). All Roberts's novels are colorful, exciting, and historically accurate. His later novels include Northwest Passage (1937), Oliver Wiswell (1940), Lydia Bailey (1946), and Boon Island (1956).
See the autobiographical I Wanted to Write (1949).
Andy <<< If your into early American History these are the ones, one is even pro-British Revolutionary War (Oliver Wiswell). DAR who had loved him before banned him after it was published
At least 3 have been made into movies.
Read them all at least once and a couple 3 times, except the 'Cowpen' book, it's available at the Battleground only and was written specifically for it.
