Abstract:

The story of America's riflemen in the Revolutionary War begins with their formation in 1775. First person accounts of their recruitment, long march, and encampment at Boston, introduce readers to the flamboyant and sometimes unruly nature of riflemen. Gripping eyewitness accounts of Benedict Arnold's march and attack on Quebec and of the battles of Long Island, Harlem Heights, Throg's Neck, Fort Washington, Trenton, Princeton, and Brandywine, highlight the unique abilities of riflemen and their important role in the war. The importance of riflemen is also evident in their service on the frontier of New York and in the southern battles of King's Mountain and Cowpens, all of which are chronicled by participants. Several maps, a bibliography and an index to names, places and subjects enhance the text.
