Overview

The Revolutionary War comes to life in true accounts by actual participants in America's struggle for independence. A doctor describes his experience with George Washington's army during their winter at Valley Forge, a naval hero recounts his exploits at sea with John Paul Jones, and women tell of flirtations with officers in the Continental Army. Within these narratives are descriptions of both thrilling action on the high seas and the dank interiors of prison ships, where many ended their days. Illustrated with 19 black-and-white period drawings.
