THE American Revolution was one of the grandest events in history; and for its influence upon the condition of men, and the destinies of nations, it must long remain among the most interesting subjects of study. But readers have hitherto been without any work of authority through which they might be made acquainted with its actors.
Scattered biographies of many of the leading soldiers of the time have indeed appeared, but no one production that could serve as a companion to our military annals, properly introducing the dramatis personœ. In these volumes an attempt has been made to supply this want.
