The author of a similarly named guide to Civil War sites considers the American Revolution to have been akin to that war in that neighbor was often pitted against neighbor. Some 700 locales are featured, including ones in the District of Columbia and Canada. Sites include preserved battlefields, undeveloped sites of action, gravesites, and buildings.
