Abstract:

"The primary purpose of this book is to present the American Revolutionary struggle as it appeared to and was recorded by the participants, patriot and loyalist, American and British, French and German, and observers on both sides of the Atlantic. Much of the record is taken from the diaries, journals, letters, and reports written during the conflict and from the maps, drawings, portraits, and paintings made 'on the spot' by those who were witnesses or whose memory was still vivid. The contemporary selections in the text are tied together by running narrative, and the illustrations are accompanied by explanatory captions."--Preface.
