Editorial Reviews

Stuart Miller
Andrew Sherburne was one of many children who worked and fought during the American Revolution. He was not quite 14 when he signed aboard a Continental ship of war, and for the next six years he served as a sailor aboard several ships, took part in a number of sea battles, and was shipwrecked. He was captured and imprisoned by the British and almost died of illness and malnutrition. He began his memoirs at the age of 62, and this excerpt, dealing exclusively with the revolutionary war years, gives a simply told but illuminating view of his life at sea and as a prisoner of war during that period.
