§ Best edition according to Howes (T-149). The author was a surgeon in the American Army. "The narrations in this 'Journal' are invested, with peculiar interest, from the fact that its author himself mingled in the varied scenes of the Revolution, observed the different phases of military life; was personally acquainted with the characters he presents; and therefore gives us the truthful results of his own observation, greatly heightened in beauty and interest, by the attractive style which he employs, and the ease and grace with which he presents them." --Preface.
