American revolutionary, Christopher Marshall, was one of the most respectable citizens of Philadelphia. He had retired from business prior to the commencement of the revolution and his attachment to the American cause brought him forward into various posts of honor and responsibility connected with the progress of the revolution. He was on friendly and confidential terms with many leading men in the Continental Congress and the new Government of Pennsylvania.

He is best know for having kept this diary (or "remembrancer") during the revolution. In the diary, he recounts meetings with famous revolutionaries, criticism and praise of George Washington, daily annoyances, the saucy young flirt that lives in his house, his affection for his wife and children, and even witticisms.

Their names are all here: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and more. This is a fascinating and valuable volume in the canon of American Revolution literature, not only for Marshall's proximity and involvement in events, but for its description of daily colonial life.

This edition is annotated with all kinds of stuff you forgot from high school and even fascinating stuff you never knew.

For less than you'd spend on gas going to the library, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.
